2005 Ford Explorer 4.0 from North America
Reliable & comfortable vehicle with good mileage. Henry, thanks for building a decent SUV!
Absolutely nothing other than wiper blades, tires, brake pads, etc. This is the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned. I've put put 70K trouble free miles on my Explorer.
In the winter I do wish that it had 4 wheel drive as I face a long steep driveway.
My Explorer is a truck-like vehicle with car-like comfort. This is my wife's vehicle and it gives her solid, safe transportation. It is comfortable and we like the "high-up" view of the roadway. The motor and tranny are dependable and well suited for each other.
I like the looks and performance of this SUV better than the Chevy Blazer I had previously. When it comes to an SUV, this vehicle changed me from a General Motors fan to a Ford guy. Thank you Henry for building a reliable vehicle with decent mileage at a reasonable price.
