Pros: "Good vehicle when running"

Cons: "needs a lot of repairs"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"This vehicle runs but it needs a few repairs. Needs new fuel pump, tires, alignment. The A/C works but it may need a new compressor. I have a new EGR valve but I could not get the old one off. Just put new front wheel bearings and hubs, brake pads, and stabilizer links on a few months ago."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Our 309,000 mile Ford Explorer XLT is an amazing vehicle, basically trouble free, well-made, dependable. Change synthetic oil on schedule. This SUV keeps going and going. Great workhorse. problem free. We previously owned another Ford Explorer XLTm a 1996, which we sold at 250,000 miles, and were very pleased with, to a mechanic who was elated to get it.... he knew three friends who had same vehicle, and with basic maintenance, still running at 450,000 miles! Well done, Ford!"
