2005 Ford Escape Hybrid User Reviews
- $6,836 - $7,315
- No trim specified for this review
- Fuel economy, clean emissions, cargo space, smooth ride, fair off-road ability
- LED displays difficult to read, expensive
I started investigating hybrids. I needed a city car (goodbye Insight and Civic) and cargo space for highway travel (goodbye Prius). That left Escape!
I figured I paid $10K more than I would have for a nonhybrid because I would not have ordered a lot of features which are standard on the Escape Hybrid. Still, my average of 31.2 highway and 37.3 city is better than the EPA estimates.
I have been a severe critic of the environmentally destructive offereings of the auto companies (and Ford is historically the worst!). When the companies began to offer some "sane" options, it was time for me to put my money where my mouth is. From this standpoint alone, the Escape Hybrid was worth it.
That said, I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the vehicle and with the support the dealership and Ford Motor Company have provided.
