It's a newer model engine, you shouldn't have any problems yet. my understanding is they are now built to last. I know there is a different tranny and oil that you can use for high mileage on rigs.

Congratulations jw3s. :thumb:
Your escape engine should be ok, providing it is well maintained.
I have clocked up about, 156,000kms on my 2006 2.3 L escape.

It is kept serviced regularly.
Keeping my escape long as possible.

I have only owned her for about a year and have only enjoyed putting the last 8k miles on it. I hope to keep her for several years. i am confident she should last for many more miles, since i was provided with all the maintenance records since the first owner picked it up from the dealership.

Back in the Day story:

It used to be, pre sixties. If a car had over 50K miles on it, the thing was worn out and in serious need of rebuilding the engine, transmission and suspension. I had a 62 Ford Fairlane as my first car. When I bought it, paying $200.00, the car had over 60K miles on the odometer. I drove that car for three years and about another 100K miles! :shock: Then I sold it for $200.00. :shades:

None, except for the Bullitt (24K) and Tribute (30K) have less than 100K miles on the clock, and most of the cars that I have owned do I let go before 200K miles. They just keep on keeping on. :cigar: So, I tend to look at 100K miles as getting broken in. :rockon:
