    2003 Ford Explorer Sport - XLT Automatic (120B) 4x2

    Pros: Extremely comfortable front seats

    Cons: Craftsmanship

    Advice: BUY AN EXTENDED WARRANTY

    Better gas mileage than I expected. Looks good, body integrity is very solid. Resists dents well. Quality is far below market average. Replaced engine mount at 23,000 miles. Replaced radiator at 36,100 miles (right after warranty expired). Replaced rear windshield wiper motor at 42,000 miles. Traded for a Nissan Xterra SE after this last ridiculous out-of-pocket expense.
