Great MPG in a SUV

2008 Ford Escape XLS 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Review
It was time to look for a vehicle with better gas mileage while providing my first priority, roominess! My 2006 Grand Cherokee, my third, only got 15.5 MPG around town, about 75% of my driving. I need room and a hard rear floor for scuba tanks, coolers, spearguns, golf clubs, telescopes and, oh yeh, business samples. Also, I'm 6'3" and the new Ford Escape fit as well on me as my much thirstier Grand Cherokee. I mentioned I was looking for much improved mileage, so when I saw this Vista Blue 5-speed I said let's take a test-drive. A winner in terms of what I was looking for. Sold! My first tank averaged out to 22.8 MPG and I probably did only 20% highway. Very pleased.
Favorite Features
Styling and value. Roominess and economy. Vista Blue, used to have an Electron Blue Vette. Hard floor in rear for heavy gear like scuba tanks.
Suggested Improvements
Rear disks. Back seat should fold flat without going to an upgrade package, but I can live with that, my dog seems fine with it.
