Im planning on buying a 2002 Explorer that has 101k miles on it. I was just wondering how many more miles out of the truck I could expect? Like a round about number. How many miles on an explorer have you ever seen that runs?
The 2002's are built a little worse then some of the late 90's, but I have heard of Eddie Bauer versions that get upwards of 300k. I saw one myself, for a really good price, but I didnt want something with that many miles.
You could expect to get about 110 to 120k miles before having to fix the automatic problems that almost every car has. IE: AC and Transmission.
Other problems might be that your enigine is simply overused and can just destroy itself. Take the car out or to a trusty mechanic if you are not one to see how well those things are. If the AC runs cold and it shifts gears/from reverse well then it may be a good deal.
