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


I was a certified master mechanic and a service director for three states. I have handled a lot of car complaints and driven a lot of cars and trucks. I ordered a new Ford hybrid about 6 months ago, and just got it. But it was well worth the wait. This is the quietest SUV, car, truck or anything that I have ever driven. It has to be an engineering breakthrough for Ford. It has power enough to pull up to 4,800 pounds (my boats and mowing equipment). I can tow it behind my motor home with all four wheels on the ground. I can get on the freeway very quickly. All the power you need. The warranty is 100,000 or 8 years drivetrain and battery.

Best Features

The gas mileage. The warranty. The power. The feel of the SUV as you drive down the road. The 6 disk radio, standard all power locks and windows and cruise control. Very good price. The service intervals of 10,000 miles. Everything about this SUV is above and beyond my expectations.

Worst Features

The a/c requires a little getting used to.
