1997 Ford Expedition xlt 4.6 (V8) from North America
250,000 miles and still riding strong
The ride stablizer in the front broke after about 175000 miles and I was out about $50 dollars.
I've had this vehicle for 7 or 8 years now and have had only minor problems. The 4.6 liter V8 is a very reliable and works better than my 2006 expedition. Its transmission works smoothly and the ride is very strong and smooth even with large tires. The interior was very nice compared to competitors. The leg room and head room are plentiful. I'm very impressed how this vehicle has stood the test of time even though its been every where from the beaches of North Carolina to upstate New york. I would definitely buy this vehicle again with no hesitation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

OK, so I got you beat. i bought a 97 in 1999 with 32 k miles. at the present a now have 279k miles without any major problems. as a matter of fact I change the oil every 3-5 k miles and I have the original transmission fluid in the car. its the eddie bauer version and love it.8 sets of tires and brakes. upper ball joints and only two tune ups. i will absolutely get another one. good luck to 300k.
