2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD
Purchased used from leasing company. Rolled over 183K problem free with regular, normal maintenance (oil changes every 4K, transmission flush every 35K). Replace brake rotors / pads about every 60K, but only because I feel safer doing so. Engine, transmission very quiet, smooth. Changed spark plugs at 90K and 175K, spark plug wires at 175K. Not sure how much more anyone could ask for.
Reliability, solid body, good instrumentation, highway mileage 20+, enough power for light towing. Great air conditioning system.
Compass failed at 180K, but I still now the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Who cares?
