My family bought our escort brand new
in 1991. So as a hand me down it is a
great car, unfortuantely half the
engine got replaced within the last 3
years(belts/hoses/alternator), but with
the new parts I plan on driving the
escort for another 5 or 6 years.
The original alternator lasted over 11
years, new last 3 months. I have been
getting 30-32 mpg in the city(have
gotten 34 mpg a few times), on the
highway I get 40 mpg. This is a grat
starter car for any college or high
