2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD
I drove my 2000 Explorer from 140,000 to 201,000 km. It was so reliable. Always started, never got stuck and never in the shop (except for routine maintenance--oil changes, brakes etc).
Before I replaced it, it began leaking a bit of oil and the fuel sensor gauge began malfunctioning, but it still drove like a dream.
It was an awesome car with lots of utility--it could carry whatever you needed, through whatever conditioned you faced (I live in Canada).
This car provided me with excellent value and should be very reliable if you take care of it.
