Can someone give me their .02 on a Escort ?

Im considering a 92 Escort for my mobile business, I think I can fit everything it; the bonus would be increased fuel economy : my 2.5 4 banger Caravan has been doing 25-27 with the air conditioner on.
But, I drive many miles to some jobs and if this Escort can do 35 (with careful driving) it can cut my operating expenses.

So, I can get this 92 Escort with the 1.9 Ford CHV motor & auto trans (124K orig miles; and not the Mazda engine) for pretty cheap

I know the earlier Escort CHV motors cracked heads, but that was the early 80s models.

Are these Escorts in that era worth a damn or junk ?

Any comments/opinions are appreciated
