I have a'98 Ford Escort with 106,000 miles. I drive about 60 miles each day, mainly on county roads - speed limit 55mph. i live in NE Colorado. I have been told that the struts on all 4 axles/wheels need to be replaced at a cost of about $1250. As this is greater than the value of the car, I am not going to do it.
Is it dangerous to drive my car in this condition? If I got a new set of tires (I need new tires anyway) and decided I would drive the car for about 3 more years and then get something else, would it be OK to just not replace the struts for 3 years?
Thanks for any advice.
