Amazing Quality, Great Buy. — Love it. Has about 250km on it, needed minimal work and this has seen true off road! Gas mileage in city isn't the greatest, but amazing on hwy. Acceleration pedal sticks a little. Paint has lasted, and minimal rust on back hatch. I do wish it had a more aggressive look.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good First Car — It was easy to handle and not too slow but not very much room. It required maintenance often but maybe because it was used. Pretty cheap to own and maintain. It was fun to drive and looked nice with a lot of options for appearance.

Hated It But Got Me Around — slow,brakes suck, handles like a box, needed a few repairs mostly from beating the hell out of it, front end squeaks from a jumpin incident, interior pretty simple and plane nothing special exterior looks like a box, expensive to maintain, very bad gas mileage, not a very fun car

1999 Ford Explorer — I love my Car. Acceleration is great and handling is sweet. Handles rad at 100mph. I broke the axel but other than that its rad. I love the DVD player and pop out screen and the leather seats. Gas is not bad at all. It takes about 35 to fill. Maintenance is pretty simple, oil, brake pads exc... this car is fun to take on road trips.

Pros

Comfortable, plenty of room.

Cons

More comfortable on the back seat than the two front seats.

It Is An Okay Car. — It is pretty comfy. Has tan swede interior and pearly white paint. runs pretty smoothly. I don't really know how many miles. It gets about 20 miles to the gallon which isn't to shabby. It isn't real fast or slow. Carries 5 people and has a V6 engine. More comfy in back seat than in the front.
