With over 168,000 miles on the original
transmission and engine this truck
continues to amaze us. Though 130k
miles is freeway commuter trips and the
remaining city driving, this truck has
yet to give us any major repair bills
(knock on wood). The leather was well
worn, so I installed beautiful Wet
Okole seat covers and she looks new
again! Well done Ford! Look at how many
of the pre-1995 Explorers are still on
the road next tiem you're on the
interstate, it will surprise you.
Well-built Mazda drivetrain,
availability of aftermarket parts,
Center console creaks and rattles more
than anything I have ever heard. For
some reason one out of every 3
Explorer's I see has a tweaked
front/rear bumper, what gives?
