Hmm I dont know what goes as a GOOD car so I will just say my car history so far..its short at age 20. First Car 1997 Explorer XLT 4.0 SOHC 4X4 White on Grey put 190,000 miles, Main high school communter. Never broke down once. Next car 2000 F-250 Super Duty Extended cab, long bed 7.3L Turbo Diesel Harvest Gold on Tan. Just went over 70,000, Consistant problems with Crank positioning sensor. Gone out three times, and left me stranded. Also hubs dont work to engaged 4x4. Newest Addition 2001 Audi TT Coupe Quattro Silver on Black 48,000 miles. No problems yet, Figures crossed!
