Is 139.147 mileage good on a use 1998 Ford

My car has 139147 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Angelica. Thanks for contacting us tonight. Anytime an older vehicle (nearing 20 years old) has more than 125,000 miles on it, it’s not necessarily a bad thing. The key is whether or not the vehicle has been properly maintained, how hard it’s been driven and the condition of major components like the transmission and suspension parts (which tend to be the items that wear quickly on these Explorers). It might be a good idea to have a professional mechanic complete a pre-purchase car inspection to ensure it’s a good deal.
