I bought this car 3 months ago for $1600 from someone who purchased it from an auction. When i bought it, it had 120,000 miles on it..My mother has the same year explorer with 180,000..So pretty good. This car has been great. When i first purchased it, we changed the oil, and a couple of belts that looked worn. Replaced a bulb, and recently we replaced a hose. (All very cheap parts.) The car is very comfortable on the inside, great for road trips, gets good gas mileage. Mine is purple, and the clear coat is chipping everywhere, but THANKFULLY my brother works in a body shop and it is getting painted this weekend. All in all, I'm glad to have this as my first car..and its made in AMERICA.

i bought this car after my 5 thousad dollar 2000 dodge intrepid died, the motor blew. i found this car through a co-worker who sold it to me for $500, almost 4 years ago. ive never had a problem with the motor or transmission. ive never had any issues, besides regular wear issues. i had to put around 550 dollars into it for inspection purposes. but after that nothing else. just drove it 650 miles (first road trip) and it didnt skip a beat. i averaged 20 mpg, which for a 4 cylinder i think is high. considering the weight of the car, i assume. good car to me. has 146,000 miles on it now.

My mom bought a car for my sister and I for our first car. she ended up giving me this piece of crap because it's racking up the repairs. I can't rely on it to be good for a couple months without a major repair and I don't do anything other than drive to work everyday.Having no heat every freaking winter in Minnesota sucks terribly, head gaskets, radiators, etc always goes out annually.AC also went out, blowers went out, trunk latch stopped working randomly, brakes squeak even after being in shop, horn had to be unplugged because it goes off when I hit the gas, can't replace without doing whole steering column.Very hard to merge in fast traffic with this engine.Piece of crap

I have only had my car a year and a half and have already put more in to the car than I got it for. I got my car for $1700 and now I've put almost $3000 in it. I had the car for 4 months before it started causing me problems. I started college 2 months ago and my car has been in the shop 5 time since then. I love the car but its problems are too much for a Freshman in college. If you think about getting this car for you high schooler do it but once they get in college start looking for a new car. I think the car would be great if it was built better.

Bought this car with 112,000 on it looked to be well taken care of. I now have 150K, and have not done a thing to it. It has been a real reliable car. The timing belt broke and the great thing is it didn't reunion the engine like happens on a lot of the fours. The cruise control quit working but somethings are expected after 11 years and 150K other than that has been a great car. I use this site all the time so I thought I would add my 2 cents worth.
