Ford Escape Hybrid is a Plus

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid Fwd 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I purchased the Ford Escape Hybrid one month ago and the mpg has been about what Ford said it would be. 33 on the highway and about 37 mpg in the city. It handles well and is a pleasure to drive. As gas prices continue to soar, my decision to purchase the Hybrid looks better and better!

Best Features

The electric and gas motors are very efficient and quiet. The navigation system is very convenient. The interior is very comfortable.

Worst Features

Ford should add a built-in garage door opener on the visor and lights in the cruise control buttons on the steering wheel. The Mach Audio sound system is adequate but should be better. The navigation system should run on 1 DVD instead of 10 CD's and should be a touch screen system.
