MY RIDE- Bertha Jones: 2001 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition
When you find something good, stick with it, says Bertha Jones, who owned a green Ford Explorer for years before purchasing the blue special-edition Explorer she currently drives.
"I've had it about three years," she says. "I like it because it's high up, and it's safe. It's a nice-riding truck."
The SUV she purchased from the Richmond CarMax has other features that make driving fun: automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. "It's good in the snow," Jones says.
And it has buttons on the driver's door that allow her a keyless entry.
"If I ever lock myself out," she says, "I have the code. I like that feature a lot."
