Coolest vehicle I've ever owned!
By Mooline on


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


The Escape Hybrid has surpassed my '71 Firebird as the coolest car I've ever owned. It's great to have the load capacity of an SUV on the same gas mileage as the Camry Hybrid. Driving this vehicle is a fun challenge - to see how efficient you can be! Technique definitely matters - no jackrabbit starts, coast as much as possible, avoid excessive speed and you'll see 32-33 mpg without a problem. I live in South FL and so far, no problems with the a/c on economy mode; car stays cool with the fan & recirc. air. I did a lot of research before buying. Settled on this vs. Camry Hybrid (equivalent in style & fuel economy) due to max. tax credit, lower price, better load capacity.

Best Features

Comparatively low purchase price. Fuel economy. Fuel Management System (part of navigation system). Cargo capacity. Seating comfort for 4 adults. Satellite radio

Worst Features

Some rough edges on plastic trim; cargo net would be nice...but think about it - this is the worst I can say?
