My 1998 Tracer (same as an Escort, just a different name) has gone well over the 100,000 mile mark with no problems at all. (Well, I did get stranded once with a flat tire, but that’s not a mechanical problem…) I plan to keep my little Tracer until the wheels fall off. Which won’t be for a long, long time at the rate we’re going. The older Tracers-Escorts were not as reliable (I had an oldstyle Escort back in the 80s), but the 90s versions are really good cars. Good gas mileage, too.
