At 83,000 miles the only work that has been done on the auto is throttle body cleaning at 80,000 miles and replacement of one coil at around 50,000 miles. Survived a strong hit from Ford Explorer with little damage and no one hurt. Mileage at 20mpg on highway which is good for a large SUV. Cannot get rid of it because it has been so very reliable and secure. Good driving position. Simple dash and plain styling and truck-like ride but big and safe. Rear back up sensor works great. Thanks.
Side air bags. Decent gas mileage and good comfortable driving position.
Newer models have all the bells and whistles that these older one do not have, but there is goodness/reliability in simplicity at times. Would buy again. Would get 5.4L motor even though 4.6 is adequate except in the hills or when fully loaded.
