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


Yes, the best vehicle I've purchased in my 45 years buying new and used cars. Zero defects, outstanding mileage. I think it combines the best combination of mileage, safety, capacity, and price of any vehicle in the U.S. market today. Its $3,000 income tax rebate made it a $25,600 purchase price for me plus tax and tag. Noticeable improvements over the 2008 model I test drove early in the year. You could coast for a long time between 35 and 40 mph on electric alone! Mine is still on break-in and the average mileage with AC on half of the time (Miami,FL) is 33.6 mpg. This is on a mix 50% suburban, 30% city, 20% highway; and American made to boot.

Best Features

Mileage, SYNC, 5 star safety rating, 120 volt electrical outlet in the car.

Worst Features

Roll out cover for cargo area should be standard.
