2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Purchased used to try for a first SUV. Mainly around town use and weekend mountain biking. Mileage is good 17- 20, ride is truck-like (read rough) but overall a well-built vehicle. Impressed by size and strength of underbody components compared to the new sport-utes. Buying this used blew away any new vehicle when you figure out the overall $/mile it costs to run this truck. Plus it is awesome in the snow here in Michigan.
