At 209,000+ Miles, Still a Great Car

1993 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV 4WD
My parents gave me this car as a graduation gift in 2004 and it had 146,000 miles at the time. It was a great car for me and it took everything I threw at it. It never left me stranded and other than the usual mechanical issues that come with a car with around 150,000 miles, it was all in all a great car. I just traded it in for a 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer and hope that this one is as good as the other.
Very comfortable for a big and tall guy. Leather seats are big and nice for those long road trip. The 4.0 V6 is a workhorse and very reliable. Very tough and feels safe to drive. Heated mirrors are nice on those winter mornings.
The 4.0 lacks power. Tends to rust under the side steps. I like the two tone look of the Eddie Bauer better, but the limited isn't too bad either.
