Normally this amount of mileage is fine...The Escape is safe, and popular...At these miles, the motor should have been tuned up...brakes replaced recently? Also front and rear struts are usually worn out before 80,000 miles...have they been replaced? A service record on this Escape may be available? Can you talk with the previous owner?
I buy mine from Suzuki, many aftermarket parts are low quality (or clones) The 89, was made in 2 places, in 89, CAMI (canada) Japan the early 89s uses this cable 15910-61a10 (suz, pn) 15910-61A30 (new design starting at Vin K411nnnnn K= 89 code. this was a mid 89 year change. the vin also shows you what country made. VIN Jxxxxxxx means Japan actually made.... buying parts is not easy.
here is the newer part, a link direct. http://www.oemsuzukiparts.com/parts/index.cfm?make=Suzuki&year=&searchText=15910-61A30&action=oePartSearch&siteid=214330
this depends on how many miles and what climate. your best bet is to call your local chevy dealer if you have one. since Obumma who knows, we lost our dealership in this area. sure makes sence now I have to go 250 miles to get genuine chevy parts. selling my chevy vehicles and as painful as it is am buying Ford at least it's not govt. owned and made somewhat in the USA. good luck and if all else fails 10w-30 is allways a good bet.
That really depends on the quality and quantity of maintenance done on the vehicle. With 140+K miles your looking at 20 - 23K miles per year. Does the owner have service records, were all the manufacturer's recommended maintenance done at the proper intervals. Has the transfer case fluid been changed every 50K miles? Front and rear differential fluids at 100K? Any transmission service work done? Plugs should have been changed at around 100K.
Buying any vehicle is an expensive proposition. Even the best techs can sometimes be fooled when buying in-person. Buying a vehicle with "built in" excuses (re-boot etc) is not a good idea. If the vehicle does not perform correctly and is not ready to "rock and roll" when you take it. I suggest that you don't buy it. A "good deal" can quickly turn into a nightmare if there are problems. If you buy "as is" or need to have something corrected, the seller is 400 miles away and you will be on your own. Likely you are excited about getting the car but sometimes the facts are not what you really want to hear. Been in the business a long time and would NEVER buy without looking it over and driving it.
Hello g_venegas,typically the timing chain should be replaced between 60 - 80,000 miles, of course the condition and how the vehicle was treated makes a big difference, so with 215,000 miles every day is a blessing regardless of how great shape the rest of it is, the big issue here is that if if fails during operation the repair cost will be considerably more than the timing chain, this of course is a decision you have to make. hope this helps you :) good luck
