Review

We bought our this Exploder new and at 165,000 miles replaced the ball joints today. I replaced the thermostat at around 60,000, the brake pads around 110,000 and battery around 120,000. It has proven to be a very dependable vehicle. I have never seen it get less that 20 MPG and have seen it get as much as 29 MPG highway. I give some credit to Militec-1, as I have used it in all my vehicles since being introduced to it in 1988.

Favorite Features

Mileage and dependability are my favorite features. I do love the auto headlamps and auto-dimming rear view mirror as well.

Suggested Improvements

Factory paint, starting to see some metal and rust showing. Partly my fault due to the lack of waxing; but, would expect better as we do not live on the coast.
