Can't kill this --except the tranny : )

Vehicle1992 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewReligious 3,000 mi oil changes & front brakes every 30,000. That's all this reliable vehicle required. I never liked the transmission, and it's clear that many Fords suffer the same fate as mine... it went before anything else did. Since I had 144k miles on it, I felt the car didn't owe me anything. Before I donated it, the wiper relay went ($140 to replace by special order from the dealer) so I gave up the good fight. When the final tow removed the vehicle from my possession, I was sad. I sincerely believe a $1,000 investment in the car would have bought another 144k miles. Averaged over 30 mpg throughout it's lifespan, & took me from my 1st job out of college ('92) to my 2nd child ('05).
Best FeaturesEngine, reliability, fuel economy.
Worst FeaturesTransmission, ding resistance, headlamp lens longevity (cloudy).
