    96K on my '97 ELX. It shows a just puff of blue smoke when started in very cold weather and has a mild 'tick'. I don't know how long it's going to last...

    The ELX does all the going to work and bad weather driving... the other car, a '00 ZX2 S/R has 34.5K miles...

    Not so fast there. My 97' has about 41K on it. Last year when I bought it had only 32,500 on it! Not bad for a first car.

    The motors seem to go out between 115k miles and 160k miles.(I am sure some last much longer)


    I bought 5 3rd gen escorts with blown engines so far. One had 115ishk miles, one had 121k, another had 155k miles and 121k miles and 112k miles.


    Every single one of them blew up the exact same way.

    I also have bought 2 escorts with bad trannies (both were 97's) One with 118k and the other with 203k.
