2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We did a lot of research before spending the money, and can't say anything negative about the Escape. Feels good to drive a clean car. Comfortable ride, handles well. Plenty of room for one Great Dane in the back seat, plenty of leg room for people too. Feels substantial and solid. Looks gorgeous in black. High crash test ratings or wouldn't have purchased. Plenty of power when you need it. Didn't get the navigation system, so not positive what mileage has been. Nothing like the Explorer it replaced though, this sips gas. Seems to be almost silent at slow speeds, so be careful of pedestrians. A good match for our needs and I have been wholeheartedly recommending it.

Best Features

Gas mileage, looks, spaciousness and comfort. Feels good to drive a clean vehicle, yet looks no different than a regular Escape or similar sized SUV's. Everything I wanted, plus it had to fit tall dogs, which it easily does.

Worst Features

Perhaps make the back seats go down with one step.
