All around great vehicle that is reliable and looks nice
Bought a new set of tires at 102,000 miles.
New brakes at 107,000 miles.
Had the center console recovered at 125,000 miles.
Nothing else has required any attention.
I bought this Explorer from my cousin, who is a technician at the local Ford dealership. He took great care of it, and I have too. I have had all scheduled maintenance done on time.
Can't beat this vehicle for $4,400. Leather seats, and the interior is in great shape. The outside has minimal dents and dings.
It rides great on long trips.
For a 13 year old SUV, it runs and looks great. These body style Explorers aged very well. They look much better than the new ones in my opinion.
Only complaint - MPG could be better... My previous Explorer was a V8 AWD, and I assumed this V6 2WD would get much better, but it doesn't seem to get but a few MPG more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
