Fun to drive, worth every penny

ReviewI just bought this Escape Hybrid a couple weeks ago. Not only is it fun to drive, the mileage more than makes up for the slightly higher price. I get about 30 mpg, but mpg probably depends on how you drive. Faster acceleration means less battery use and lower mpg (my wife used it for a couple days and the onboard calculator showed 27.7 mpg). I have the FWD, so if you get 4WD, expect lower mileage. With the $2,600 tax credit, the hybrid only costs a little more than the 18 to 20 mpg regular Escape.
Best FeaturesBest fuel economy of any SUV out there. Plenty of interior room, fun to drive, and looks great.
Worst FeaturesA fold down front passenger seat to provide more cargo room. Having a longer warranty period would be nice too.
