KevinL Posted December 14, 2006 Share Posted December 14, 2006 As many of you know I have a part-time job delivering pizzas. This is 4 nights / week, averaging 240 miles per week of stop and go driving. I also drive 20 miles each way (highway miles) to my day job, 5 days per week. I drive a 1998 Ford Escort with 212,000 miles. It currently has numerous issues, mainly clutch slipping, brakes scaping, and brake light on (parking brake is broken). Because the brake light is on I can't get an emmissions test here in Ohio so I am driving with 30-day tags. Rather than put more money into the Escort, I'd like to buy a car for less than $1000 that will get decent mileage and last me a few months to a year. The car just has to run, looks and prestige are irrelevant to me. I'm looking on ebay and I see a 1992 Hyundai Excel for $500 (Buy It Now $1000) with 113,000 miles. This car is less than 20 miles from me so there's no transportation costs and I can even see / test drive it. Does anybody have an experience with this / advice for me?
