Wish I had my TAHOE Z71 back
By Sandra Kemp on


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


I purchased the hybrid solely because of the price of gas; approaching $5/gal. I was driving a Tahoe Z71 that had a 25 gal. tank that I had to fillup every 5-6 days. I came from a Cadillac to a geo. When I accelerate up a hill it sounds like a cheap sewing machine; unbearable. The interior carpet and leatherette seats are cheaply made. I had to brake quickly the other evening and slid sideways. No traction.

Best Features

Gas consumption averages 32 city and highway. Stereo system is above average.

Worst Features

Get rid of the pinging sound when you accelerate. Improve braking. Upgrade the interior materials.
