Still Strong After 18 Years — I bought this car in 1997 with just under 70,000 miles on it. I planned for it to be a 5-6 year run before buying another. After 9 years, this is still a great car. I consider replacing it every year, but it's low cost of operation and very few repairs (and minor ones at that) have been excellent. Now, with over 215,000 miles, it runs almost as well as it did at 70,000.

My 1991 Ford Explorer — its got good acceleration, handles all right, brakes need some work, needs paint job and few new interior panals, good gas mileage somewhere around 16 mpg.it will peel tires if u stomp on the gas, digs nice holes off road.its a ford so its easy maintence and very reliable

Pros

More practical than a Wrangler and just as capable

Cons

The head gaskets tend to blow due to restricted catalytic converters

Solid Vehicle. — The Shifter feels cheasy and the interior lights can not be turned off when the doors are open. Solid drive train 4.0L V6 manual transfer case and a locking rear differential dressed up with a chrome cover. Supprisingly quick vehicle for a V6 SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Ford Explorer — I love my truck its a 1991 so its old as hell it has 200+ thousand miles on it and iv never had a day where she wont start. I take it offroading all the time i tear my way through the woods with that explorer and its bone stock. The 4.0 v6 is totally factory and the suspention has not been messed with (yet)

Pros

Cheap, plentiful, easy to repair if repairs are ever needed (they aren't)

Cons

Old, slow

145

1991 Exploder — Lots of space Decent mileage for a damn near 20 year old truck A bit slow, but that's compared to brand new cars Sorta ugly, but that's compared to new cars- and is subject to opinion. SOme people like the utilitarian look... Is an unstoppable force of nature Can't beat the price

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
