Bought mine in June of 2008 with 84,000 miles on it. I'm the second owner and take extremely good care of it. Maintenance is always done religiously on time. It now has 145,000 miles on it and the only thing it needed was the oxygen sensors replaced.
NEVER has broke down on me. Only issue I have
is the rear wiper motor is stripped out where the arm is inserted into it and the rear window hinges have stripped out at the screws. I have taken it off-road twice, once in sand, and once up and down some decently rocky short hills and it climbed like a champ...still no mechanical issues! I'll buy another one if gas economy is better. It's an XLT V8 AWD. Prefer to choose 2 WD or 4 WD
