I Bought It Used @ 20000 And Now Have 81000.. With Only Minor Issues So Far — im at 81000 miles and so far so good, the axilliary coolant pump went out, cd player and passanger front power window. I enjoy the good miles and tons of cargo space. Its nice to take on long trips.... hope it goes for 10 more years

Pros

I'm getting over 30mpg driving normal (not conservative), 50/50 city/highway driving.

Cons

Hmm, not sure -- it's not the spunkiest vehicle on the road.

Excellent Value — The interior stying is a little plain, though I do like the exterior looks of this vehicle. Still, I'm growing to really like it! Pleasant to drive, and have I mentioned I'm super excited about the gas mileage? I've received feedback that sitting in the driver's side back seat that the traction battery fan noise is noticeable.

Pros

I love this car! The only reason we are selling to upgrade is that we need a car that can seat more than five.

Cons

We are looking to buy a new hybrid that will seat at least seven.

Great Compact Suv Hybrid — The gas mileage is great, the car drives well, and it has plenty of room for a family of four. I have really enjoyed this car for the six years I have been driving it and I have had no major issues.

Pros

Fuel efficiency, creature comforts, and a good feeling knowing you're helping the environment without the in your face styling of the prius

Cons

Not recommended for towing

Great Lil Suv — Bought this car used in December as a Ford Certified Preowned (100,000 mile warranty and what not) for 15,000. 30,000 miles on it at the time, now she's got 47,000 on her. I need an SUV for surfing/camping and for work and have a '95 Bronco but 13 mpg was hitting the pocket book pretty hard. This mini - ute has steadily returned 25+ mpg, is quiet, has more power than I thought a four cylinder hybrid would, and IMO looks extremely classy. I looked at the Excursion, the Escape, and the Chevy Equinox as well and for the money and creature comforts this one couldn't be beat. It has all the bells and whistles; leather, sunroof, 6 disc CD changer, Nav system, and heated seats - all of which are welcome. The 4wd system is automatic so I never have to worry about getting out to lock in the hubs or push a button. The hybrid system really is a work of art - it is virtually seam less to all but the most sensitive of drivers. Its great for slow (under 30 mph) driving and it makes you re-evaluate your drivin habits, I have found myself trying to see how long I can keep it in "electric only" mode. All things considered this is a very capable SUV (except towing is not recommended), looks great, and doesn't burn a hole in your wallet at the gas station.

Pros

the space and size of a small suv with the mpg of a compact car

Cons

not a lexus rx by any means, ok build and funny noises take getting used to

Suv With 28mpg Is Good For Commuting And Running Errands — performance - not great on acceleration but enough for a hybrid braking feels a bit odd, due to the regen braking effect, but is steady and straight when needed. cornering is ok for an suv, these are a little stiffer and sportier than most build quality - the quality is good for a domestic, the hybrid makes funny noises (normal) gas mileage is good at 28mpg avg., a little lower than the posted 30-34mpg, but with the awd this is to be expected
