My new SUV!
 
My girl friend is going back to school and our Plymouth neon can't be in two places at once, so we decided to get a new vehicle. We capitalized on the fact of recent high gas prices and got a steal on a nice 2002 Ford Explorer Limited. Now we can haul the dogs around and still have room for friends and family.

PICS!

Typical american jeep, not available here I think. Does look good compared many other SUV's, but can't beat the Audi though :)

128747km for a petrol car is not nothing... hope you didn't pay too much

16-18MPG is 13~14.7L / 100km, I wasn't that far off :)

my current car does 900km with 40L: 4.4L/100km or 53MPG!
