Should I trade my car
Question Scotty (Everyone)
I want a car to last forever. I really want a Toyota, but I have buyer regrets and have a 14’ Ford Explorer (3.5 Not Ecoboost). Minus my negative equity, would it be worth trading my Ford Explore in for a Toyota Corolla or Camry?
If it is the 3.5L Duratec, I would consider switching to a Corolla/Camry OR be really over the top with maintenance on the coolant system and water pump. The water pump is timing chain driven, and the water pump location in the valley or the engine could spill disaster for your engine, pun intended. I don’t know the failure rate of the water pump, but it is worth investigating IMHO.
