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


Mountain driving with 26-27mpg. Smart AWD system works better than my Jeep's system. Comfortable heated leather seats and easy to use dashboard controls. Driver visibility and ride height higher than other SUVs. Could not justify the extra cost for the Toyota. Durability remains to be seen, for my Ford track record is not good. Good crash test results but not the best. Handles great in deep snow. Perfect for a family of 4 and winter gear in the back for a weekend in the mountains.

Best Features

Exterior updates for 08', stereo system, seat comfort, climate control system, backup assist, acceleration, moonroof, interior fit and finish. Income tax incentive. Silent ride on electric up to 40 mph - most hybrids only go up to 30mph on soley electric. Standard warrant for hybrid components.

Worst Features

Engine noise at higher rpms, plastic front grille, no towing package, overpriced navigation system, substantian roll when cornering, front and back wipers on the same controller, roof racks not long enough for my large snowboard
