2005 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

With gas prices continually going up, it was time to re-think fuel economy. Although I would probably never have considered the Ford Escape (I was looking at minivans) the thought of a Hybrid SUV caught my attention. The Escape has a pleasing body line and the interior is adequate for a family of 5. While I may not be the tree hugging type, it is nice to drive past the local gas stations without turning in. If you are looking for quiet, this is the car for you. No engine noise, no road noise and handling which is very responsive.

Best Features

6-CD stereo standard is nice and the floor shifting is easy to handle. The electric adjusting seats are very comfortable.

Worst Features

The gauge cluster leaves a bit to be desired (no temperature gauge, and bland looking). The tilt steering has little adjustment. Not too many options are available.
