I have a 1992 Ford Explorer with 550,000 miles, and is still going strong. Her name is Faithful Helen. I bought her brand new in November of 1992. I have heard people say things about ford (found on road dead) or (fix or repair daily) that is certainly proven not to be true, and my ford is proof of that. Helen and I have been together for 21 years the best years of my life. I have had several offers for her but, there is no way that I can separate from my Ford. She has the same engine and body from the time of purchase. I would certainly recommend to any one to go Ford. So in short Ford is tough!
