212,000 miles. Doesn't leak or burn oil. Just hauled a 4,000 pound trailer from VA to NC at 70 mph with no problems. 4x4 works great. Have had to replace door handles twice, and headlamps finally got so bad I needed new ones. Besides that it's been batteries, tires, oil, brakes and a kiss every now and then. I love this truck and will have it till the wheels fall off. But then I'll probably put them back on and just keep rolling baby!
A new steering wheel and instrument panel freshen the Explorer's interior. New wheels are the only exterior changes. Explorers gain four-wheel antilock brakes that work in both two- and four-wheel-drive modes.
