1994 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan LX 4dr Sedan
Just did a cross country IN to DC avg 35 mpg-200 lb luggage and 450 lb passengers. Even the newest cars don't get that good of mileage. Rides nice with GOOD tires. 5 speed manual make it fun. All interior and exterior mechanics still work. Made some of the repairs mentioned plus new fuel injectors. I keep working of the rust above the rear wheels so maybe I can keep this GOOD little car for a few more years. Added cruise control works as good as factory at a fraction of the price. Don't forget to downshift early on the hills.
GREAT gas mileage (avg 35 have seen 44. Not uncomfortable on a long trip. Great size for getting around town.
FORD start making the equivalent again!
