We tend not to see cars with more than 200,000miles on them in the UK, although obviously there are exceptions!

Ah, another point I forgot to address was location. You're surrounding by salt water. I myself am in the snow belt of America where they throw salt on the roads. Both situations cause pretty bad rust. Oklahoma though, thats inland and to the south so their weather conditions aren't so bad. Taking care of the motor is all they really have to do over there to keep their cars in top shape.

I know what you mean, it can be like that over hear. We have salt on the roads during the winter months, but where I live we don't get very bad weather....usually. Obviously if I was to live by the sea, my car would probably rust alot quicker. I believe Ford had a particularly bad batch of Escorts sold over here in the late Eighties...something about Southampton docks or something? lol

If you want fuel economy and low emissions get a Nissan Sentra, which is the first SULEV ever made.

No you are wrong, the best economy car it's this car.
Only 1.4 gallon per 71 miles. It's Russian car "Oka", very popular was here.
Capicity of engine 1 Litre, two cylinder, no ABS, no steering booster, no climate control. So it's best way for young driver. And cost only 1500USD for 5 years used car.
