Best Bang for the Buck
By Russ on


2008 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I have never owned a Ford, a hybrid, or a kiwi green vehicle before. I am very impressed. I love this SUV! We are going to get a $3000 rebate from the government so getting this vehicle was a no brainer. We also looked at a Toyota Highlander and for $10,000 less, the Escape was the best bang for the buck. The interior is roomy, SUV has good handling, and I love the kiwi green color. The hybrid is so quiet that the SUV sounds like the engine is off. I am getting 32 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. It has a very smooth ride and so far, I would recommend this SUV to anyone. Be prepared to wait 8 to 12 weeks if you order one; but it is worth the wait.

Best Features

Gas mileage (31 mpg overall within 1200 miles), the looks of the vehicle, the trip reports, sunroof, roominess, smooth ride, green color, government rebate, extras for the price.

Worst Features

Needs a 6 way seat instead of the 4 way seat plus the center dash readout needs to be brighter or shaded better.
