We have an '08 in the family...it replaced an '04 Explorer XLT which met its demise when a 16 year old was more interested in sending a text message than watching for a stop sign at a 4 lane divided highway.

They are good vehicles for the money...the '08 just turned 30K and has needed no maintenance other than oil changes, tire rotations, and a wax job.

Shop around for the Ford extended warranty. I would think its like GM...you have up to 12K miles or 12 months to purchase it. I found a dealer in PA that sold me GM Majorguard for my Yukon over the internet for a little more than half what my dealer here wanted.
