194k and still tickin'
By IBO on
1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD
Bought this vehicle from my parents over a year ago. My mom used it for her main vehicle. Bought it with 183k miles on it, but I knew this vehicle's history since I was a kid when it was purchased. It now has 194k miles on it and it is running as good as new. Hasn't leaked one drop of any fluid. I routinely get 20-22 mpg with a mix of city/highway driving. Still nice to drive. Body has very little rust. Paint is still great. Wash/polish/wax as often as possible. This vehicle is a testament to what happens if you take care of a car. I expect to take this Explorer to 250k miles. Maybe more. One of the best Fords myself or my family has owned!
Interior room, 4x4 is great with WI winters. Quiet, great fuel economy for an SUV.
Ride isn't as plush as other SUVs. More power would have been nice, but it does the job.
