What do you do if you have a 2003 Ford Explorer and you have driven it so much that it has $2800 worth of repairs? Well, the answer is you buy a new one. So my mom bought a 2010 Ford Explorer Limited 4×4 V6. It is our third Explorer. Here is the time line. We had a 1997 Explorer Eddie Bauer 4×4 V8 for five years, then a Windstar, then a 2003 Explorer XLT 4×4 V6, the the Limited. Our 2003 saved me and my mom when someone going 30MPH rear ended us. The only damage was a tiny scratch and dent on the bumper. We bought the 2010 on March 16, 2010 and on April 2, 2010 it has 869.6 miles. Runs great and sounds great. We will continue to buy Fords in the future, and keep our other Ford, which is a 1997 Ford Mustang GT convertible. It has premium sound package, manual transmission, red exterior, a beige interior, and is always garaged. We have had many happy and sad memories with our 97 and 03, but our looking forward to making new one’s with the 2010.
