Go with your gut. a '04 exploder probably needs transmission work if it didn't already, and has poor gas mileage. How long do you plan to keep this vehicle and how many miles do you drive a year? for an example, I buy used cars under 100K miles , that way I can drive and keep them for at least 10 years. HTH's

Best Answer

Its either the 04 or an 02 99,000 miles. Well I definitely want to use it up, man thats a good question, I honestly don't go very far or even drive too much but still I just need either one to be reliable. By the way thank you for your answer.
