Reviews for 2008 Ford Escape
2008 Ford Escape 4cyl
I LOVE my 2008 Ford Escape! It has a lot of get up and go for a 4 cylinder engine, rides smooth and fairly quiet for an SUV with such a small engine. I have back problems and the seats are great. I love everything about the interior, there is so much room throughout the vehicle. That was the major selling point for me besides the great looks and cheap insurance. It gets good gas mileage, I average 23mpg with a/c running with some stop and go traffic. On the highway I get 26mpg even with the a/c running. I love the exterior looks and shape. It is a small SUV with a whole lot to offer for a very reasonable price.
Pleased with Hybrid
Really like the car and am pleased with the customer service of Carmax. Given the differences between a "normal" car and a hybrid it has taken time to appreciate it. This is not a high torque motor and tends to rev high when accelerating onto the highway. That said I really enjoy playing the hybrid game in town. Getting started in all electric, cruising home on electric only from the store....basically driving is interesting and fun again. The stock General radials are horrible tires though. Seem designed to introduce road noise to the cabin. When they wear out I will absolutely go for the Michelins. Gas mileage is hard to get used to. Higher in town than on the highway.
Escape with Ford's Escape
Finally got an SUV...wanted something on the small size because of gas prices. Ford's Escape was the perfect buy. I've only had it for a month but so far can say I really like it. Perfect size for a first time SUV buyer. Love the red color...nice looking SUV. Didn't really want to get black leather seats...it looks good...but this summer has been soooooo hot...and that's the last thing you want for hot days. But overall, it's a good ride...and good looking...and pretty good on gas. I wanted to buy American...keep the jobs in this country. Thanks Ford
