2007 Ford Escape Hybrid User Reviews
- No trim specified for this review
- Honda Civic-like fuel economy, plenty of room for passengers AND luggage, ultra-reliable
- I'm a big guy and feel comfortable, not luxurious, in the driver's seat
Purchased As New
This vehicle absolutely does everything. I've had the car for a little over three years and average 28-29 mpg overall. I've taken trips of 800 miles hauling four other friends and all our luggage with no problem. I've NEVER HAD A MECHANICAL ISSUE WITH THIS VEHICLE WHATSOEVER, and I have 62,000 miles on it. I just drove from Charlotte, NC to Washington, DC (which is a 7 hour drive normally) in a terrible snowstorm and blizzard, and it took me 15 hours. However, I had no problems at all handling the snow-covered highways with my 4WD, while I saw no less than 30 cars in ditches on the way up. SUV's, trucks, you name it, they couldn't handle the snowy roads. My Escape handled it beautifully. No levers to push, no gear to shift to, the 4WD turns on automatically via a computer in the engine. It's unbelievably easy.
From time to time I try to snoop around and see if there is a better deal I could get on a car, but frankly fuel economy hasn't improved enough in todays cars to justify me getting another vehicle (I get 28-29 mpg consistently). Also I have 4WD along with plenty of cargo room so I blow every other SUV out of the water with respect to fuel economy. It's going to be years before any other car can challenge this vehicle.
