re: Used SUV..best deal under $10k (Posted on 10/5/12 at 2:15 pm to BTHog)
a car is the last thing i want to buy new.
it is guaranteed to get beat up.
you depend on this to go to & from work, potholes, orange barrels and gravel, rain and hail, rock cracks from stones thrown out by tractor trailers, etc.
i understand buying a porsche or something to keep in your garage as a collectible and drive only on certain days but the SUV i plan to buy is for basic public transporation and i know its going to get beat up..i don't drive on private highways

I've driven six explorers since the first one made in99'. I've sold all to friends at or about 150k miles. For $5000-5500. The 02 & 06 are still rolling with 225 K + . That ford 240 HP V6 is best they've ever made. Go get you one...
