I previously had a Ford Explorer but sold it and I am now looking for another one. I came across one that I like but too bad I can’t say the same about the price.:rolleyes:
I like Explorers because I feel comfortable driving them and for the most part they are overall good vehicle(my opinion) but Ford Explorers are known to have problems with their transfer case and transmission. I had to replace the transfer case and the transmission before selling my previous one. I am hoping to use the as a bargain as well.
Its a 2005 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer V8 pretty much the standard features excluding the DVD entertainment set. There is currently 81,000 on the vehicle. And the dealer has it priced at $14,300 which I think is a bit high.
When I contacted them about the vehicle, the guy responded saying that the vehicle on going to an auction the next day. Now I am not sure if he did that thinking I would rush in or if the vehicle was really going to the auction. I responded by telling him it is alright and I will look for another vehicle. Than 1 day or so later he emailed me back saying the vehicle is still there.
I thinking more in the range of $11,000 out the door price for this vehicle. I am thinking about purchasing an extended warranty from ford which will run me another $1,000 or so because repairs can get costly with explorers especially going towards the 100,000 miles mark and the warranty are known to pay for themselves. I am not spending more than $11,000 for the vehicle. Is my offer too low or still too high?
