The radiator blew up at 270000 miles.
It is on its 3rd battery in the life of the car.
IFS rocker arm mounts went bad at 290000.
Power steering pump hose exploded at 296000.
This car has been in my family since new in 1991. My mom had it, and then my sister, and now me. It cureently has 297000 miles on it, ALL ORIGINAL! It even has the ORIGINAL calipers on the front. Everything on this car works. The seats are amazing; eazy to clean up. There is no rust, and the paint is not even faded. It has had 3 sets of brakes on it, and it is due for the 4th set. It gets great gas mileage; I average about 20mpg in the city and about 26 on the highway. It has an electronic transmission. I press the button, and it says "pwr" and it goes faster and revs the engine higher. I can say this is the most reliable car I have ever had. I just got back to Arizona, from Ohio; a 4700mile trip and it still runs like new.
My 2001 Explorer threw a rod at 96000 last year and I was the original owner. My sister now has a Prius; Toyota are amazing!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
