  1. Why don't Hybrids get more love?

    I always put studded snow tires on my 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid. Usually, hybrid tires are made of a "harder" rubber (this fact comes from my experience as a chemist for Uniroyal Chemical").This improves the mileage, but the tire doesn't "stick" to road as well. Which is why everytime I...

The dealer had it for two weeks, and they finally put me in touch with the Ford engineers. They sent a software patch, and Voila! no problems. The Escape had...
