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

Review

While the mileage is good (28mpg), the intstrumentl cluster has not been modified to the needs of a hybrid. No battery gauge (full/empty), no engine heat gauge (for hybrid efficency a need to know). CVT is horrid, needs a manual transmission. Interior doesn't work for a short person (5 foot) as the cupholders are hard to reach and the between seat storage is behind the seat. Dashboard is hard to read at dusk.

Best Features

Mileage.

Worst Features

Improved instrumentation. Trip B gauge necessary. Battery gauge, engine heat gauge (see the Honda civic hybird gauge, that's how it SHOULD be done). Increased production for better pricing.
