Ursula for Sale (our ’93 Ford Explorer)

After 14 years, it’s time to move on.  We have had some good times, made some great memories, and traveled many miles together.  So, I offer up for sale the SUV affectionately known as “Ursula.”  Check the video and info below for more deets.

The Good:

Air Conditioning has been upgraded (at a cost of $1000). Could use a recharge.

The not-so-good:
Leaks a bit of tranny fluid
4×4 switch motor is bad
ABS light comes on sometimes
Every 100th start, a small vacuum cap blows off the engine. Not a big deal, just slip it back on and away you go.
Rust here and there
Driver and passenger front dome light trigger switches are disconnected (dome light still works with dash switch)
Front and rear bumpers are sagging (from getting hit)
Probably a few more things I am forgetting

If you are looking for a showroom vehicle, keep on looking. This baby is not the newest thing on the road, but she gets the job done. This SUV has been in the family for 14 years. My kids refer to her as “Ursula.”
