Hi everyone, I'm new over here. I just saw in your site a Ford Explorer XLT 2001 for $2,500 which is an affordable and fair price for me since I'm a student and I only have a part time job to pay it. I would like to know if somebody can tell me what are the risks of buying a Ford Explorer so cheap ?? It has 175k miles, how many more miles do you think I can run it ?? Thanks for any review or opinion about this SUV. If any Ford Explorer with high miles owner read this and can tell me a little bit about his experience I will really appreciate it. smiley

I saw the ad on: http://www.autopten.com/cheap-cars-for-sale-2868-used-Ford-Explorer.htm

I saw the ad. For $2,500 this Ford Explorer looks really good. It is also so cheap. You can't imagine how much this SUV would cost in third world country in this same condition, probably more than $10,000. But well, your concern is about if you are gonna have to take it soon to the workshop eh?? The answer is a little bit obvious, an SUV with $175k miles ?? you never know how the old owner treated it. My advice is to check its CarFax and see its history. If I were you, I tried to get a smaller vehicle for about $3,000 with less miles and cheaper to maintain. I check out the Autopten listings and they just published a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier for $3,990. It is a good vehicle and you are going to save more money in gas. Dealing with the dealer you can get it for $3,500 I guess.

Good luck buddy! smiley

Thanks for the advice Yeah, I was thinking better and the spent in gas would be fatal for my low budget. Ford Explorer's don't have a good reputation regarding to gas consumption.
