When I first turned 21, I decided to purchase my first new car. I was looking for something with space and convenience. Against the will of several of my friends, i decided to buy a 1999 Ford Explorer. From day one, this car has been amazing to me and my family. It has never broken down, or needed any major repairs. Thank Ford! This car has blown away my friends in regards to their expectations. I applaud this car because I have driven it to 311,896 miles, and it still runs GREAT! Thanks again Ford for making another great product!
