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


I have been watching the Escape Hybrid since it came out in 2005. I have read a lot of reviews, and knew to wait until after 1000 miles to check MPG. Also, have read enough to know that cold weather drops MPG, but that is the cost of living someplace cold. I set the cruise on my 35 minute highway drive to work at 70 for the first month and averaged 32.5 MPG. Second month I set the cruise at 65 and it jumped to 34.5. Add in the city driving and I get around 35.5. I had to rush home one day, and it really does move like a V-6 when you stomp on it. I rode in a 2006 a few times before, and again after, buying mine, and the 2008 is quiet. Engine rev noise only when it is working real hard

Best Features

MPG great. Heated seats, awesome. Nav system worth the extra money. I got mine loaded, and love every option. The very best part is knowing that my money went to an auto worker in Missouri and a bank in Detroit rather than an oil tycoon. That alone makes it worth the extra money.

Worst Features

Build more, and make America less dependent on foreign oil. Better yet, build a Focus Hybrid so I can replace my wifes car.
