Asked by Feb 06, 2017 at 09:43 PM about the 2011 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD

Question type: General

I am considering purchasing an 2011 Ford Explorer
limited with 86,000 miles on it for 19,500. Is the
mileage a huge concern?  Can I expect to get some
miles out of this vehicle with little huge maintenance
repairs

I owned a Mercury Mountaineer with the 5.0 engine, (and that was just a fancy Explorer) it went 285K miles before it broke a piston, so the things that went bad before hand were, the front differential bearings, front hub bearings, distributor bushings, and 1 door speaker, other than that, with good maintance it should give you a lot of service. Unless it is the 4.0 engine, then not so good. The price seems a little too high with 86K on it. If your serious about this rig then take it to a shop that does used car checks, it is money well spent, it can help you avoid a mistake, like one poor fellow found out, bought the car without getting it checked over, signed the paperwork and makes it about 4 blocks away when the head gaskets blew. The car lot said too bad it's your baby.

Consider. I purchased a new 2016 F 150 XL, work truck with AC, power steering, and a good time radio right after the 2017 came out. for 22K plus tax. You're talking You're talking 2500 bucks more. Unless you definitely need a SUV.
