Purchased my 2nd Escort with 26,000
miles in Oct. 2000. Now has 73,000
miles - mostly highway. In that time,
I have not had a single problem with
the car. Gas mileage is terrific,
averaging about 33 with automatic
trans. Front seat gets uncomfortable
for me on long trips (2+ hours), but
it's a terrific car all around. I'm
now selling it to buy a newer Escort
wagon...but what a great car!
Color scheme (white w/spoiler, blue
int), gas mileage, reliability
Too late for improvements...and the
Focus is a marginal replacement.
