For those of you who don't know, our 1999 Explorer broke down. It has been a very reliable vehicle for the past 6 years, but we were noticing things that were starting to go wrong. Mostly little things that were going bad (door locks/handles/latches). However, a couple of weeks ago something major went wrong. I think it was something with the gaskets or the engine head. Anyway, it was going to be very expensive to fix so we decided to look for another vehicle. We found this one (This is the website pic. Ours is the same color and model) at CarMax. It is a 2008 with 5500 miles. It seats 7 (which was important to me) and we got it for $16,995. We think it was the perfect mix of style, comfort, size, and price. Stan says it is a girl's car and we have gotten several comments on how "cute" it is. LOL. So he says it is my car and he is holding out for a Motorcycle!
