Very economical AWD ... great run-about!
July 9, 2018
I bought our low KM 2005 Hybrid AWD Escape in 2016, 2 years ago , for $4500. It's summer 2018 now and it runs like a champ. With all-season radials it averages 8.2litres per 100 km, and increases to 9.2 with snows in winter driving. We were lucky it had no rust, just a few scratches' n such, and keep it undercoated now. Total kms at present about 165,000. We do mostly country driving, on secondary highways and in town, but it runs just fine on 4 lane highways into Toronto etc., at 120km/hr, and has decent acceleration for passing when the hybrid kicks in, almost like a 'turbo'. Very pleased.
