Default hello from ne pa!

Hi, my name is Rich, and its a pleasure to be here! I bought a 2007 equinox ls for my wife, awd model. previous suv was a 2004 ford explorer, always called it turd exploder, I hated the turd, drove it like 1000 mile total myself, wife drove it like 50000 miles herself.
The day we traded in the turd for the equinox I been driving it for work everyday Stacey (wife) only drove it 3 times. we got it 2 weeks ago
today was the day I drove my truck to work, so she can start driving her new *car* shes loving everything about it, so im ready to mod it I didnt mod the turd once, I let it drive til we trade it in. didnt change the oil from 53000 miles to 104000 miles dohh. hated the thing. am glad to get rid of it.

just wanted to say HI!

Welcome to the site Rich! I will tell you though... Those Exploders are hard to kill. Buddy of mine has one with 260k for work. He just got into a Taurus.

That Nox should be a little better on fuel.

Again so glad you joined up... I think I know of a grill for sale on the site!

Sorry you had a bad experience with it. Don't get me wrong. I have never been a fan of Ford and have never directly gone out and purchased one.

Well being a Duramax owner and a powerstroke driver through work I have learned that Powerjokes are worse than your experience with the Exploder.
