Lube, oil, filter, air filter (yes, I could do it myself - but I only work on my MGB). Leaking rear differential fixed, left outer tie rod replaced. Now the nice part - I had a vibration in the left front. After replacing the left outer tie rod, my shop thought it was taken care of. They test drove the car, and still noticed the vibration I mentioned. They rebalanced all four tires (new 5,000 miles ago - from the same shop). They found a high spot on one of the tires - and replaced it no charge. Now I can put 1,000 miles on it this coming weekend with confidence. It has 116,890 miles on it, and the $500 was well worth it. My vow is not to replace it until my oldest graduates from college in (drum roll, please) 2015.

how about more pics of the MG? those cars are great. my buddy has a 70something and i helped him rip it apart. it was a fun task. him and his dad are rebuilding it. even though it has never seen snow or salt, its rotten and his dad is the 2nd or 3rd owner.

So in another 7 years you Escape will have approx 230K on the clock. Assuming that you drive it like you did the past 7 years. "It'll due (it) Pig, it'll due (it)." You may have to work the tie rods again... :thumb:
