For Style It's An Suv And His Name Is The Beast — My Beast has been a good work SUV it is a 1993 and except for a few minor things that didn't cost me much to fix it is an awesome vehicle. Don't know how this years Explorer's have been rated but I rate The Beast EXCELLENT

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

Pros: it's been really good for me it can handle anything I do with it. Not to mention it has umph it picks up speed almost as good as my Stang I love my Beast

Cons: Only thing wrong is it gets horrendous gas mileage

A Great Overall Truck I Love My Fords! — Nice riding truck looked great, Tons of cargo space when you folded down the backseats just loved the overall look and sportyness of the 2 door backed up with the 5 speed manual tranny, The only downside to the truck was a design flaw with the 5 speed tranny that caused the demise of the transmission from leakin fluid while driving,, but not when parked.......

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice lookin truck / suv   great fun w/ 5 speed

Cons:   transmission went out because of a bad design flaw

Best You Can Buy For The Current Price Range — Most bullet proof rig ever.. 200,000+ miles on the original, factory transmission and motor. Never had anything major go wrong. Most extensive stuff i have done is a transfer case, starter, spark plugs, and alternator. The 4X4 is almost unstoppable, I have never gotten stuck in any terrain, and that includes going to work in January of '09 with that 70+ inches of snow on the ground.. The Explorer plowed right through it all the way up Sunset Hill and down Geiger Rd. If you have a 1st generation Ford Explorer (1991-1994), the only things you will have to worry about is changing the fluids and brakes. The brakes wear rather quick on these is the only downfall.. But just don't ride your brakes like a Grandma and you won't have that problem to frequently!! The 4.0 Cologne V6 motor still has a lot of balls left for having 200,000 miles on it. Once the motor goes out (if it does) ill be rebuilding it to go another several 100,000 miles!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, winter driving, skiing and camping trips

Cons: Gas mileage

Dont Buy An Explorer, Any Year — has a good v6 power for its size, but lacking in acceleration, 4x4 was good when it worked, the gas price was bad for a v6, ball joints, ac, cruise, and 4x4 all went bad after 130000 miles not fun in the summer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4x4

Cons: everything

Blah — Good looking but a piece of crap from the beginning. Always breaking down, horrible gas mileage, a pain to fix. Was not worth the money paid for it. Great to beat on and destroy though. Almost blew it up on accident and holds a lot of people.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: NONE

Cons: crappy Ford

It Is A Great Car!! — I like that is has plenty of space and is comfortable. It is very nice with a 6 cylinder engine. Only thing is the fuel enconomy. It gets 15 city 18 hwy. Not bad for an old car like that!

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

Pros: It is fun and it feels like your driving a big truck!

Cons: Nothing. Nothing at all!!!!

Ford Explorer — Okay for pulling a boat, somewhat reliable. Used to use it for pulling the boat to go scuba diving. Wouldn't pull a boat without a 4x4. Got plenty of use out of this vehicle and miles. Tranny went around 185000 miles but only because someone didn't add fluid. Started slipping and then fianally went and junked it.

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

Pros: Great in the snow and plenty of room for passengers

Cons: Gas hog

I Love My Fords — this model is a 4 liter and it is good on fuel economy has enough power for any task without being a v8.the explorer is built ford tough and they mean it. it will take a lot of punishment and still drive smooth.since owning this vehicle the repairs have been minor except the water pump and replacing the fuel tank which means dropping the fuel cell(tank).the water pump requires removal of the radiator which isnt all that difficult just time consuming. the only thing i dont like about ford is that you require special tools for automatic 4 wheel hub removal.FORD ROCKS,CHEVY WALKS!!!!!!!

Pros: FUEL ECONOMY AND POWER

Cons: SPECIAL TOOLS FOR REPAIRS

Ehh — I totalled it but it was built right so actually it saved me... it wasn't the best looking truck but it got me everywhere and it was stick... 4 liter V6 and getting 20 miles a gallon is pretty good... Interior wasn't amazing looking but it was spacious... quite spacious... back seats folded flat to make 8 foot bed area... could haul like a pickup, well almost... and it pulled trailers without a single issue

Pros: Solid, mild off roading capable, got around decent

Cons: didn't look too stylish inside or out
