Sonic Blue First Review
By jomomma on
Vehicle
2005 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
My 78 year old mother bought this sonic blue hybrid SUV. She is still trying to figure out some of the technology, but loves it. Seats could be a little more "cushiony"; pretty firm, for an older lady with not much fat (and me too), more plumpness in the seating would be nice. Was told it has "intelligent 4WD", meaning it puts itself into 4WD when it needs to; would be nice to have a light or something on the instrument panel that shows when it is actually in 4WD. But so far we love this little hybrid SUV! Oh yeah, sometimes there is a pretty loud "thump" when the electric engine kicks in, like while sitting at a light, that kinda freaks you out, I thought what the heck just hit my car?
Favorite Features
Electric engine takes getting used to driving. It's really weird when backing up and sitting at a stop light, you don't hear a thing. Very quiet electric motor, don't know it's running half the time. Comfortable ride .So fun to drive, handles like a dream!
Suggested Improvements
Plump up the seats cushioning. Add a light on the instrument panel showing when it has intelligently placed itself in 4WD. Fix the "thump" of the electric engine kicking in; it is quite disconcerting when you are sitting still, sounds like something hit the car.
