      Hello! I live in the northeast and I'm about to purchase a 2001 Explorer sport tomorrow. This will be my first Explorer and first SUV. It has 92k miles for $1800. Only known problems are hood struts don't hold hood up, center console armrest is cracked and cruise control buttons are broke. Is this a good buy? Anything else I should check out before I go through with the sale? Thanks!

      Yeah could be. I’ll wait til it gets warmer before I replace them. Are there any other things I should look for before buying this that could be expensive to repair? Thanks

      Yeah it seems to be ok. I replaced the blend door on a 97 town car a few years ago. Not a bad job just time consuming. I just want to make sure these explorers will hold up transmission/engine/4wd. It’s mainly only going to be used in bad weather for me.

      I got it and just got done cleaning it and messing around with it. I had to put a new battery in it but seems to be running good. I do smell oil every once in a while. The oil looks clean but dip stick reads over the full line. I should prob drain and replace just to be safe.
