My first new vehicle. I still use it as my spare and my son uses it too for work. It has 368,000 miles and I have only had to replace the alternator and the thermostat (cracked) plus, all the normal militance. It still runs smooth like it was new.
I have the 2005 Ford Explorer XLT Eddie Bauer v8 model and it’s crazy it’s a super nice car I have a drop on it with 27 inch rims and off road tires and it looks super clean it’s a lowered wide body explorer my dad bought it back in 2011 as a family car but now has handed it down to me at 16yrs old it’s a super clean truck I love it and it’s really fast for an suv especially because of the v8 with 4wd launch times
221,889 miles and STILL loving it
I bought my 2005 Explorer Limited V8 in 2007. It had come off of a lease with about 30, 000 miles. Now, it’s 13 years later and it has 221,889 and I still love it. This is my 3rd Explorer. It is still my favorite design of all the model years. I bought it when my son was 2 and my daughter was not yet born. I can afford to get a newer suv, but keep it because I’ve had it so long, it’s taken me so many places safely and comfortably, that it now has sentimental value. Next goal: 250K miles. If you take care of this SUV, it will last.
