I purchased my 1998 Ford Escort LX with 141,000 miles on it. According to the old Title, it had been purchased one town away from the used car dealership that I bought it from, at a dealership when the vehicle was new. It was traded in with 100,xxx miles on it and purchased by another woman (both were women) in the same town as the original Ford dealership. It has PS, PB, AM-FM Stereo, Rear Defroster, 5 Speed Manual. The car now has 233,xxx on it, and all it has cost me is (1)Alternator, (1)set of tires, (1)set of brake job, (1)exhaust system-front to rear, and the normal regular maintenance items like oil changes. It is still giving me 30-40mpg in fuel economy! I paid $1900.00 for this car 5 years ago! It’s my commuter buddy! Oh, and one of the best parts is: Most of the car’s exterior and interior look new.
