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.

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

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

I Love It — i love the handeling, ride, and the seats are confortable, not to mention the trunck leaves alot of room even with two 12 inch subs in the back, oh and the rear seat folding down really helps to but really big objects in

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.

Plenty of room in trunk, performs pretty well

Doesn't ride the best in the back row of seats

Pretty Nifty Car — It handles pretty well. The breaks are pretty good but the acceleration pedal sticks a little bit so it is sort of jumpy at times. Interior is a little dirty in the back floorboard and the center console top is slightly ripping ever so surely. It gets pretty good gas mileage for how old it is and the fact that it is an SUV. Overall its a pretty fun car to drive.

One Of The Best Fords Out There — Shifting could be better, but for a V6 with a five speed auto, it has a good amout of power! I love how much room there is inside. I love how well it handles in winter weather. Styling is phenomenal! it a such a sporty looking SUV, one of the best looking out there! Everyone always complains about the gas mileage, but if you dont drive it hard, its easy to get 24 mpg!

Great Suv — Great SUV. Lots of room. Wished I still had it. Tows well. Minimal maintenance even though it was used. Little high on the gas mileage but fun and easy to drive. Nice appearance. Great in all types of weather. Definitely work the money. I would buy another one in a flash.

1999 Ford Explorer — Its a step up from my last car but i liked that one better. it was unique the one is more run of the mill. I wish it was a standard but thats my sacrifice for more refinement. The gas mileage could be better but it is a four wheel drive suv (18mpg). No major repairs while i've had it. The power and acceleration is better that i had at first expected but i wish it could burnout. the automatic 4 wheel drive kicks on at the first sign of slippage. Just started have interior rattles but then again it is almost 10 years old. Not as fun to drive as my 5 speed ranger but it can be fun.

Best And Strongest Car I Know Of — Its a strong truck that we can get in and drive problem free. we have taken it across the country on extreme last minute things and it will go no problem. it has plenty of power and the handling is amazing. the body is in great shape and it gets 20mpg highway. we filled it up with cement when working on our house and it drove through cities and highway like there was nothing in it. over all i could not be more pleased in a car.

Good Vehicle. By Ken
