1. I want American. I'm feeling ridiculously patriotic and want to support American carmakers at this point.
2. I would prefer to get a hybrid, if only to help the environment in a little way.
So at this point, without doing any test driving yet (which we will), we're leaning toward the Ford Escape Hybrid Limited. Does anybody out there own a hybrid of any sort? Do you have any words of advice or wisdom you'd be willing to share? I'd like to go into test drives as informed as possible, so anything you can offer, I'd greatly appreciate.
