2005 ford escape hybrid - amazing fuel economy!

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

This models all wheel drive works for off road, but is best on-road. Despite its added weight, it gets wonderful gas mileage and its hybrid model saves even more money and is better on the environment. It is very easy to handle and drives smoothly. Its engine is very quiet and has an alright amount of power. The interior is nice and roomy, with the back seats down there is tons of space for moving. The safety features are great, and even after an accident the car took very little damage. For the price range, this vehicle is a great choice, especially for families.

I like most of all how the trunk is so spacious.

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

I love how much room it has in it. I don't like how rough it drives when going over bumps. It gets pretty good gas mileage. If I gas up I can go just about a week on a full tank depending on how far I drive. I love how the trunk is spacious and has a flap so I can cover up the back if I want to put something back there.

The Hybrid Ford Escape is quiet and the hybrid kicks on going 20 MPH and under.

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

The MPG in the Ford Escape is okay, I get approximately 19-23 MPG. It's extremely reliable and rarely have to get any maintenance. The 2005 Ford Escape drives okay but not comparable to newer cars. I would say the 2005 Ford Escape is the perfect car for new drivers; easy to drive, reliable, and a huge money saver.

Slow and steady wins the race

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

Not enough power. Slow acceleration. Good gas mileage. Hard to do small fixes at home. Some speciality parts needing because of Hybrid. Good for small family. Safe. Good visibility. Good space for content. Can sleep in it. Can fit a kayak in the back with the window open.

It is it an all wheel drive SUV. It is silver and perfect for my short height.

2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

I like the shape of my vehicle, it allows me to see well out of the sides of the front windshield. I like that the seat is adjustable up and down, as I am very short. I like that it sits up high on the road. I like the durability, as we have had minimal problems.
