2007 Ford Escape Hybrid

My Ford Escape Hybrid is not the most luxurious car in the world, but it is a fun car and it fits all my toys in the big cargo area (ie mountain bike, climbing gear, surfboards, etc). It also has surprisingly good pick-up and is pretty zippy. I like that it is not a huge, obnoxious SUV but still can take me off-road when going on adventures in relative comfort. I got mine in the ice green (see above color) which I dig it is not for everyone, I know. The Ford Escape Hybrid also has a pretty cool little rolling 15 minute mpg average. It is surprisingly addictive to drive around town trying to maximize fuel economy (which you do by not stomping on the gas too abruptly and minimizing the times you have to come to a complete stop). Driving around West LA (non-freeways), I get about 22.4mpg and can get nearly 30mpg on the freeways. So it is not as fuel efficient as a Prius but it is a virtuous car nonetheless ;-) One thing I HIGHLY recommend is getting a jack installed so you can play your ipod in your car. Ford should make that a standard feature

So, I had a little outing in a Ford Flex must say that, yes, even though it's sort of hearse-like, and a bit of a Mini Cooper on steroids, it's a lovely, roomy, comfy, clever thing and I like it. OK?! I like it. It's stylier than a people carrier and less gauche than a big SUV but it is ultrafunctional: huge cargo area (surfboards!) and all the smartypants computer-y stuff for communication and not getting lost and not backing over animals in front you'd want. The mullet of automobiles - business up front, party in the back!
