Good Choice For Hybrid SUV

This is the right choice if you want a fuel efficient small hybrid SUV. Gas mileage is consistently over 30 mpg in city or highway despite very cold weather. 4 cylinder engine has ample power on any type of road. Sync system is a nice option with navi (which also enhances sound system) but it raises the price beyond what some will want to pay. Interior is very nice but not quite up to luxury standard one typically finds in vehicle in same price range. Wish the back seats folded down easier and was surprised to notice an old fashioned exterior radio antenna. These are small negatives to what bottom line is a real nice vehicle made in the USA. Nice work, Ford.

Better than advertised.................

The fuel efficiency rating by the Fed was 34MPG city to 31MPG Highway. I have always done better than these numbers. The average is more like 37MPG City and 35MPG Highway. In the warmer months the car delivers 38 to 45 MPG City and 31 to 40 Highway. If more peopole knew how to drive these Hybrid vehicles more people would own them. I prefer bigger cars having previously owned minivans. When it comes to room and comfort these vehicles spoil one relative to other cars. If there was an effective minivan hybrid, I would want one. The Escape has been very reliable. There have been no service issues. My dealer is an exemplary one. I have had to pay for no srvice beyond oil changes, filters and windsheild wiper blades. I think Ford makes the quietest cars in the industry. My hat is off to Ford for this specific model. I only wish the rear seat could move a bit backwards to provid a bit more rear seat leg room.

This is an Escape Hybrid Limited, so it has a lot of bells and whistles- more that I need but I wanted a hybrid and the price was right. I consistently get over 30 mpg both highway and city driving. It has enough "oomph" for my use. Things Ford could have done better: lose the shiny black trim on the console (dust and fingerprint collector), put a "lock-unlock" button by the rear hatch, and have rear seat folddown levers by the back hatch. Otherwise, *****.

Have had the Escape for a little over 18 months. It's been averaging about 34 MPG with mostly city driving, and I am sadly a jackrabbit starter, so it would probably be better if I drove it more lovingly. Love the SYNC feature. Surprisingly roomy inside, despite its small and nimble outside dimensions. Minor complaint: I wish there was some convenient place to put the rear seat headrests when I fold the rear seat down.

Pricey toy

I've owned two Explorers ('97 and '03). I traded my '03 for a 2010 Escape Hybrid AWD Limited. My previous purchases were XLT's so I was awed by all the options on the Escape. Its a fun vehicle to drive, feels very carlike. The only time you know its a hybrid is when you first start it and there is no engine noise. The display reads "ready to drive". Probably not the car for everyone but it fits our needs living in Colorado and needing more cargo room than a sedan. Bought it in Nov. I avg 30 mpg mostly around town driving.

This car has all the features we can imagine. Plus it rides very quietly and smoothly. I would recommend this vehicle to everyone. The only thing I miss is the handle over the driver's door for ease in entering and exiting the car. My wife loves the heated seats and seperate HVAC controls for driver & passenger. We also like the fuel effeciency which is ranging in the high 30's M.P.G

I have to parallel park on the street all summer at my dad's apt complex while they rebuild the garages. The self parking feature is a blast. Push the button on the consol, pull forward until the readout tells you to stop. Put the car in reverse, let go of the steering wheel and it does its thing. The steering wheel spins clockwise and then counterclockwise, slips the car into the space and stops it before it backs into the car behind. You can use the brakes while it parks but if you grab the steering wheel it disables the system.

Avoid at Any Cost

The cabin lights do not go on when you open the door; you have to manually turn off the headlights when exiting the car; there is no light in the rear section at all... and countless other standard features you find in any even super-cheap car like KIA are obviously too advanced for the 19th century engineers in Ford. The touted SYNC, like anything Miserosoft, is a pathetic failure with absolutely no intuitiveness - you have to fiddle with the devices almost more than if you used them with no "advanced Ford technologies". I was fooled by the low mileage, which isn't as low as advertised, either, but by now I've convinced at least 30 people to never even consider a Ford again, and neither will I. "Piece of trash" is far too nice to describe this pathetic, dull, boring and worthless pile of 1950s technology garbage.
