But now the cats are bad/clogged... of course they're built into the manifolds and cost $300+ a piece just for the parts. I'm debating if it's even worth my time - which would suck if it's not considering how much money I've just put into the thing replacing every component in the front suspension.
I don't know dude, for a 11-year old car with 170k on it, that doesn't sound all that bad to me. Now that you've replaced all that stuff you may have another 100k care free miles.....

$1,000 a year for maintenance or $5,000 a year for payments......

The Focus isn't an automatic, it's a DCT, manual trans shifted automaticly. The Escape is an automatic, it's parts are more closely shared with the Fusion now.

The Escape and the fusion were related at the hip powertrain wise from 2009 at least when the Escape got the fusion's 2.5L i4 and 6F35.

The newer escape shares more with the MK3 Focus, except for the automatic transmission from the second gen Escape and the Fusion.
