What is good to you?? I have a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 5.2 for sale. The only thing wrong with it is the 14 mpg.

Theres a guy on explorerforum.com who got his 1999 Ford Explorer XLT (4.0L V6) to 32 MPG highway, thats with quite a few bolt ons and a chip though
oh how it would be nice to have that SOHC instead of my OHV

hate on ford if you want but my family has driven fords exclusively and has never had any problems outside of normal maintenance, mine is approaching 11 years old now, and I've had it for the last 5 and have never had any issues.

If you know how to maintain a car it will last.

Anywho, I would have to recommend a Ford Escape/Mercury Mariner or a Toyota Rav4

I test drove one of those a little while ago, and was very dissappointed with the enigine. Good MPG, but you could fvcking walk there faster.
