2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 petrol/LPG
If you get a good'un you'll be fine, if not - beware
At 89,850 miles the gearbox went.
About 200 miles later the timing chain went belly up.
I sold the car for some one-tenth of the price I paid for it - after only six months.
I loved it, I simply loved it. It was big, brash and, in this country, rather rare. It was a comfy drive and driving on LPG was nice and cheap.
Lots of people seemed to hate it, and that just made me like it even more.
However, despite oil level checks/change, the big beauty decided two weeks ago to go downhill rapidly, leaving it cheaper to scrap than keep - I loved it, but am not sorry to see it go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
