Default Re: Feedback on Ford Escape hybrid

I went to look at one for my wife and this is what the dealer told me. He said most of them will be painted yellow and used as taxis in the city. He wouldn't be getting any anytime soon. As far as the electric part of the vehicle is concerned, it only uses the electric power when you are going 25 M.P.H. or less. The batteries were not going to be warrantied and they were big $$$ to replace. He knew I wouldn't be lookng at any other Ford vehicles so him telling me this wasn't so he could sell me something else. True, I don't know. I bought her an Acura TL, nice car.
