We are original owners of this car being our 2nd
Eddie Bauer Ford EXPLORER 4X4 . Wife uses it as a commuter vehicle, I
get it when anything is wrong with it....lol. We have 326k miles on the car. She commutes 30 miles daily
4 miles city 26 miles highway daily with vehicle. We got 350k
miles out of the previous generation car
before someone hit it and totaled it.
You can get good mileage out of these cars if you dutifully maintain them. Husband has Ford Explorer Sport Trac
for work around the farm and grounds. We also own VOLVO sedan Maintain these vehicles and they will last as long as we have had them. find a good mechanic after you have finished your first 100k with dealer service.
