Default 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!




Full flickr set HERE.

Thought this would be a good ice breaker for my first post. what do ya think!

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

Sorry, I meant: how many miles to the gallon?

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!
