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


Fuel prices made me give up my Nissan Titan (I cried) but I felt better after fueling up the first time. First tank I got 32.34mpg (AWD). This is a combination of highway/city. The digital readout for mpg does read low as another reviewer mentioned. It is very quiet in town and reasonable at highway speed. It is no tire burner but acceleration is acceptable. Stock sound system is good, climate control works well. It also makes me feel I am doing my part to reduce greenhouse emmissions.

Best Features

Great mileage for an AWD SUV, quietness, low emissions. Appearance is nice, overall fit and finish is good. I also like the safety features provided by the multiple airbag systems.

Worst Features

Interior could be brightened up a bit... very dull and plastic. How about making the gas engine capable of burning E85 to make it even more "green"
