"i've had this car for four years. it has 109,000 miles and had 85,000 when i bought it in 2004. it has never broke down on me. repairs have been few, minor, and inexpensive. mine has 4 wheel drive and it handles GREAT on snow! the only 'complaints' i have is that the resale value is horrible...and there is a noise that is coming from the front wheel area that nobody can seem to figure out. so hopefully it's nothing major, it's just an annoyance for now! also, the passenger side power window has been sluggish lately so i think i may need to get that fixed soon. i would definitely recommend it overall. i've been looking to get a new car but i've been so pleased with the explorer's reliability that i just can't let it go!! :)"
"I have a 5 speed manual, it has great suspension, cheap upkeep, and very reliable. I recomend this car to everyone who wants a good 4x4 suv. Mine has 123,xxx miles, and the only thing i've had to replace is the clutch...great car."
