#325 of 712 Escape hybrid price in San Jose
Apr 21, 2008 (4:51 am)
Went to Frontier Ford in San Jose, CA yesterday 04-19 and did a test drive on the Escape Hybrid. The salesman says all Escape Hybrids are on sale with $4,000 under MSRP. I almost bought one but did not because I want to wait for the 2009's improvements, such as stabilty control, suspension tuning, better engine, etc. If anyone want a 2008 with a big discount and live near California, might want to check out Frontier Ford. I notice there are about five of them in the lot (might be more)and most of them are fully optioned with Premium Package, Navigation Package, sunroof, etc, with sticker price of around $31,800 and change. Good luck shopping.

2009 Ford Escape Hybrid Limited, 4WD (U59/750A), fully loaded, ordered April 21, 2008: $35820 + $390 processing fee + $1086 tax + various filing fees + license = $37400. No trade-in figured into above.
I'll be lucky to see this vehicle by late Fall since production scheduling begins 05/15/08 and production start up isn't until 6/23/08. That assumes everything goes smoothly at Ford's plant in KC and battery availability (the item that seems to have biggest impact on delivery date) hasn't gotten worse since people started talking about it on this forum a while back.

Good luck! Keep us posted as things progress. I'm curious to see how they handle the 2009 production.

I was quoted a 2009 base model (2WD Hybrid 300A/UA40), with no options other than the step bars at $29,345 MSRP, and $27594.84 at invoice. Costco is +$500. 4 governmental ad-ons: a doc fee of $55, tire fee of $8.75, DMV...$350, and sales tax at your home county rate. I'll likely sign up in the next couple of days...
MSRP seems to have gone up a fair bit since last year... I'm not looking for anything special but the bare bones model. Still, much that was optional last year looks to be standard this year.

I've been looking for a used hybrid, but decided to stick w/my old Jetta for now. But, I keep fantasizing and searching every once in a while. So, I was looking at Craigslist in Sacramento and saw a used one for a super good price and thought I'd pass on the info to someone who is looking more seriously than I am (yes, I'm resisting temptation!!). I don't think I'm allowed to post a link, but you can probably just search for it on CL. Here's the description: "Must sell due to divorce. Leather seats, sun roof, front and side air bags, 6CD changer, FWD, Continuously Variable transmission. Great Car with lots of room. 34K hwy miles."
Hope it's legit and works for someone in CA!! Crossing my fingers that my Jetta doesn't break down and I end up needing this steal
#332 of 712 Order 09 in New Jersey
May 01, 2008 (4:05 pm)
Want to order a 2009 FWD Hybrid Escape Limited using x-plan (pin number in hand) as soon as possible. The few dealers that I checked with did not want to take a x-plan order. I live in South Jersey will travel about 100 miles to make a deal. Any input would be appreciated. If you would like to email me please send to : EMEEKER371AOL.COM

Can anybody share what the differences are between the base FEH and the limited model? Also if you have dealer cost, invoice or msrp prices. thanks! I am waiting in the 2009 !
#334 of 712 just ordered my 2009 escape hybrid limited
May 02, 2008 (8:30 pm)
I was too late for the 2008 models so I waited for the 2009's. My dealer called and I went in today (5-2-08). The 2009 offers 2 versions of the hybrid; the XLT and the Limited. I ordered the limited and it has all the upgrades from the 2008 that I wanted as standard. The 2009's also are equipped with Sync as a standard feature on both versions. They have discontinued some color options and have added a brilliant silver metallic (I got this one) and a white suede. All I had to add was side steps. My dealer said that it was possible that I would receive my car late July or August. He would know more after the order is sent in as to production time etc. Base price on the 2009 limited is 30,635. Hope this helps you decide. I will update as I know the time frame for my vehicle.
