2003 Ford Explorer Sport XLS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
This is the first automobile that I have kept for more than 3 or 4 years. It is very reliable. I get regular oil changes and scheduled maintainence and I have not had any problems with this vehicle. It does suck the gas a little, but since I don't have any mechanical problems, nor car payments, it doesn't seem reasonable to me to trade it in.
I like the leg room in the front and the seats are more comfortable than you might expect. I don't seem to have any issues with "blind spots"
With only 2 doors, the front passenger seat is a pain to move up to put children in the back.
