    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.

    Pros: Dependable, low cost

    Cons: old

    Don't Buy One, But Gets You From Place To Place With Modest Reliability — We got this used with a blown head gasket. After numerous engine and cooling system repairs, we got it on the road and it's been running decent ever since. It gets horrible fuel mileage, but acceleration and braking are good for an SUV, its luxury features are nice, and it hasn't broken down in ages.

    Pros: 4WD, leather, A/C, 4.0L V6 is pretty dependable, good power

    Cons: Peeling paint (common problem), terrrible fuel mileage

    1991 Ford Explorer 2dr Sport — Good Power delivered by the 4.0l engine and a 5 spd manual. Does not do well in snow in 2wd, but 4wd is fine. However the push button 4wd is not a great system.

    Pros: Power is good, handling is decent.

    Cons: Poor Traction in 2wd on snowy roads.
