I recently bought a brand new 2012 explorer limited and my fiance and I took our first road trip to see her parents in Maine for Thanksgiving. And I realized while we were there that I am now truly part of not only their family but Ford’s family as well. I have always driven an Acura and when deciding what vehicle I should get my fiance suggested the explorer. And on Thanksgiving I realized why. Her mom has been driving an explorer since 2000 (that now belongs to her brother) and she now has an 08 sport trac and now that I have the 12 limited we truly are an explorer family! The vehicles are truly great vehicles and that’s why we keep on buying the explorers through the past 12 years. Although this is my first, it most certainly won’t be my last
Here is the picture of the day I bought my explorer. So proud to be an owner, it only had 5 miles on it when I picked it up and still had all of the plastic on it (note the plastic on the wheels.
