This Was My First Car, I Loved Theresa, But She Was A Pos — No one forgets their first car, and this was my dream car at the time. I got it senior year in HS and was in love. That was, until everything started falling apart. Hoses, sensors, even the rear glass fell apart. Although, she made it to LA twice, tahoe, and many other places without so much as a peep.

Pros

4wd and comfortable

Cons

It burns fuel like it free. The spark plug locations

45

Its A Pig On Gas — but its also partly my fault. The number 2 and 3 spark plugs are a pain in the ass to get at. The interior is very comfortable in leather. The outward veiw is decent and nice and high when your use to cars.

Gas Hog — I drive a ford explorer . The gas mileage is horrible. When ever there is a problem with the vehicle it cost thousands to fix.

Pros

Quick.  Automatic climate control.  Radio controls on steering wheel.l

Cons

Fuel Economy.  You gotta pay to play though.  People are convinced they will roll themselves, but in reality it is all driver error.

Badass. Enough Said. — Ford did a good job on the 1999-2001 V8 Explorers and Mercury Mountaineers. V6 transmissions are a little weak if you work them hard, but the V8 powertrain as a whole is very strong and reliable.

1999 Ford Explorer — She's got 140,000 miles on her and she is still trucking. Leather interior is nice, just a good vehicle. When I get on her, you definitely get pushed back in the seat, quite impressive especially for a Ford SUV

Pros

It easily does a burnout for an SUV

Cons

Nothing its a FORD! I could use a V8

25

Excellent Performance And Quality — Very good brakes, pretty good acceleration, looks really good because I have HID headlights and window tint, nothing has broken because it's a FORD,about 15mpg (I have a lead foot) really fun to drive, best in class easily, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for fun.

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