I bought this vehicle in Deceber 01.
I was a single 28 yr old guy at the
time and wanted something that I
thought would be cool. I bought the
Louisville made Explorer. I loved
it. Still do for the most part.
However my new wife has inherited it.
Which is fine, she drives only 5
minutes to work and with the 17mpg it
gets. I can't afford to pay 2 dollar
gas. We still drive it when we go
places. It has been very reliable for
me. I know a lot of people have had
some problems. If you don't drive it
like a bat out of hell and change the
oil it will be fine. Besides normal
maintenance not had the 1st problem
Cruise Control, Strong Radio, good 4wd
Gas mileage is Putrid!! But tha's
what you expect. Weak V6 for such a
big bodied vehicle
