170,000 miles. 2nd owner for
11 years and 100K.
There would be many more of these on the road if the typical owner maintained them properly.
AC never serviced and still blows ice. Orig exhaust still looking good.
4FEAT auto tranny works flawlessly due to regular fluid changes.
Less orange peel than many newer cars.
There have been a few erratic idle issues in the past 5 years.
Rebuilt head installed in
2006 due to bad lifter, and to avoid
valve seat failure issue some owners
I have calculated the TOTAL cost to own and operate (fixed and variable expenses) will be around 22 cents per mile, EVERY cost, including insurance and registration.

I love my escort. I bought it used and
I have never had any problems with it.
Not once have I ever turned the
ignition key and had a failure. The
looks could use help, but hey, it's a
cheap car. I hope that whenever I buy
a new car, it is as reliable and
trouble free as this car.
