09 escape hybrid--what an improvement
By jrs3 on


2009 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I just traded in a 4WD 07 escape hybrid for a 4WD 09 hybrid--what a huge difference--the driving experience, quality and comfort much improved. The vehicle has become a class act rather than a noisy bare bones 4X4. Other improvements include a much better tuned switch from gas to electric and the mileage is better (31 average in mixed driving and it is not yet broken in).

Best Features

drive smooth, mileage, solid feel

Worst Features

Minor complaints include chunky exterior styling (go European for god's sake) and the shift lever which is a tacky square silver plastic thing with a sharp edge that catches your finger in the front--Ford just put the fusion shift lever in and make the interior the same.
