Ups and Downs....

2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD
I bought this car as a demo with 2100 miles on it. It operated well for the first 4 years - recalls were handled promptly - but then the problems started. Normal wear (brakes, wipers, battery, etc.) to be expected (but not appreciated) but alternator failed, fuel pump went bad and other assorted "minor" problems (which aren't cheap to fix) before it hit 50,000 miles. Have always enjoyed driving the car - especially on long trips - very comfortable, easy to drive - wish gas mileage was a little better - but don't mind sacrificing that for the comfort. Not sure if I'll buy another one though.
Comfort and inside creature features. Great in snow, ice and rain.
Electrical system needs improvement to avoid early power failure issues.
