2000 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV 4WD
My first new vehicle was more unreliable than many used vehicles I had before. Ready for the list: Valve body in transmission, engine rods, oxygen sensors(2), transfer case, front differential seal, driver's side ball joints 3 times, tie-rods twice, passenger side ball joints once, center console collapsed, rear window leak! 5k in repairs! All this by 75,000 miles! Too bad I enjoyed it when it ran.
20 mpg not bad, 4x4 better than my old Jeep, body style, good power
All things mechanical. This is why people buy those ugly Japanese SUV's
