Welcome to the forums. What kind of driving did someone have to do to put 500k on an engine. And is that kilometers, or miles?

it goes to the 10 thousands I think. I could be wrong but im goin off what the paperwork says and from where it was at that point. If anything it make for a good jaw dropp when you go in to get parts or something

yea i had a guy that i bought a escort from swear it had 400,000 miles on it he told me to look at the odometer so i did and it said 40,600 miles not the 406,000 miles he swore was on it but i didn't argue with him since i needed the car for parts any how.

Haha Yeah I really dont care what the milage is. If you maintain something it doesnt matter. I mean anything can go at anytime. Like my mom has a 03 vue it came off the line with a honda 3.0l in it and a acura tranny at 255hp that trans went out a 50k. And yes I know they are the true parts cause I worked at gm at the time we did a vin check on it and it all checked out that way only 500 of them came off the like in 03 before they went back to gm parts. So mileage doesnt truly count in my book maintenance does and what is done to it. I hate to blend thats why I stuck with this car even when I was making 20 an hour

They do but hers is so much fun to drive. Put your foot down and it spins all 4's well it did before the off road tires. and will still on a corner but yeah. It hauls till it governs at 105. other then an identical one i would never get one. and apperiantly acura has had a prob with these trannies

Sounds like a nice ride, good luck all my Escorts have run well and one has nearly 200,000 miles.
