    for yrs. We had an Escort hatchback, a stick shift. He drove it for about the same amount of miles that you did and got 40mpg out of it. The transmission kicked out and we sold it for $100. We saw it driving around town for at least a couple years after. Loved that car.

    We went to an auto auction and bought a 1998 Chevy Malibu for a couple thousand and we're still driving it. Great car, too.
