2016 Explorer XLT
2011 Limited. Purchased February 2011. Early build, November 2010.

She's been rock solid. Especially after all the TSB's were done this early spring.

This is the best Explorer I've owned. I've had a 2003, 2005 and a 2007.

We celebrated with a Mobil 1 oil change and tire rotation at Wal-Mart this morning, and then a car wash and gas fill-up at lunch time.

In October, she'll get new shoes. The Kumhos have been great. Never had an SUV tire last over 45k miles, and these will go at least 55k.

No I have not, and don't expect to until about 90,000ish. I never ever replaced brake pads in my 2003 or 2005 Explorers. They were both returned on lease from a company fleet at about the 70,000 miles mark.

On my 2007 Eddie Bauer, we had the pads replaced at about 90-95,000 miles. Rotors were fine, just pads. At the 120,000 mile mark, it was traded in towards my 2011 ($13,000 on trade).

So, I expect the same from the 2011 Limited.

These are my company car. Lots of highway driving. Not a lot of city stop & go.

My 2013 is only 3 1/2 MONTHS old and it's got 7500 miles already. Driving my kids to their sporting events each day/week is racking up the miles.

No major issues at all other than a few small items, which were corrected quickly
