A Pain In The Neck Vehicle

It is October 19, 2015 and January 12, 2013 we bought a used 1999 Ford Explorer Sport and we have had several repairs that had to be made on it and there are still repairs needed on it. We just put over $1,000.000 in it and the interior is very nice, its a manual and the transmission is good, nothing major going on with the motor. We had put new parts in the front end which includes 2 new tires, which cost us nearly $1,000.00. When we first looked at it it seemed like a great vehicle boy did we get ripped off. We paid $5153.00 and now we are trying to get at least $1,000.00 out of it! Now we may end up having to take it to a junk yard and it has less than 100,000 miles on it. We did make one huge mistake we did not really pray about it and so it's no wonder we ended up with a junker. We just bought another SUV a Jeep Liberty 2004. After you drive it you smell a hot smell which our mechanic says is from the leak he repaired. He said it could do that after a couple of weeks. We had our mechanic look at it before we bought it and he said it all looks good. It did have a couple of repairs needed but nothing major. Hows your vehicle situation?

Mine are good, but I crawl all over them before buying them. I flip salesmen out when I start popping the hood and crawling under looking for leaks after the test drive.
