This is an awesome Escort I have…It has over 156,000 miles and looking to double that..so far I have changed a few things–timing belt, serpentine belt, new radiator hoses, coolant flush and new a/c compressor..added some 17″ rims too..car is running on original engine and transmission..so you can tell I am in it for the long haul..i drive it to work everyday commuting just about 100 miles a day..very reliable..I have all utmost respect for Ford and all its products..I would drive this little Escort anywhere I go..would not hesitate to do so..it may not be the fastest thing around, but it gets me to where I need to go…

MJ That's great! I'm sure you'll get another 150K out of your escort. I had an '89 Escort GT that had over 280,000 miles on it before I had to shed a tear and let it go. And I didn't put near the amount of care into that car like you have with your's. Good luck and thanks for sharing!
