    Junk — Comfortable and stylish, that's the only thing good I can say about it. The performance and fuel economy were both pathetic. I got angry at this car every time I drove it. My wife decided it was bad for my blood pressure to own it so we sold it. Best move we ever made. Stay away from it!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I liked the style and looks of the vehicle. I liked the allow wheels and leather seats. it was a very comfortable car.

    Cons: No power, pitiful acceleration, and absolutely horrible fuel gas mileage.

    1994 Ford Explorer — She was a good ride - so/so on gas - but big in comfort. Rode nice and was reliable until the tranny died 3 DANG TIMES - and the final time was it - once I got it road ready, I sold it and never looked back.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Plenty of room in this one... and the 4WD worked - She could get through the mud with ease - with standard tires -

    Cons: Transmission is made of plastic!  Lost mine 3 times and I never EVER rode her hard.

    Explorer Matt — It's easy to park, paint is strong. People compliment me on the seats being confortable. Plently of ash trays front and back. Plently of people want to ride in it always. Everything on this truck works, really reliable and great vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pretty reliable

    Cons: Filling up!

    A 90's Suv. Everyone Has One. — I like it, my off road vehicle. 4 wheel drive is good for snow too. Ample power to get around in the city. Unfortunately it gets the same mileage as a 5.0 mustang. Not the vehicle you want to drive to and from work everywhere in the summertime when the fuel prices spike up. Great for camping trips and the winter. Alright MPG on long roadtrips makes it bearable. Ice cold A/C too. Transmissions seem to go every 50-100,000 km too. Best to make sure the fluid is changed every few oil changes and add an extra trans cooler as well.

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

    Pros: Lots of room and off road capability

    Cons: Transmissions are junk, i'm on no 3, and only owned it for 4 years.

    Didnt Want To Sell — This SUV is a fun drive with a five speed manual tranny. Handles good even when lifted. tight turning radius. Built well and looks beafy, fairly cheap to drive and repair. Gas mileage could have been better but with a 4L V6 and lifted sitting on over sized tires you cant be too picky.

    Pros: Loads of fun off road

    Cons: N/A.  fun SUV

    With 248000 Miles On It And No Trans Or Motor Rebuild Id Say Its One Of The Best Around!! — It can take off pretty fast and can beat a bunch of cars out there. it will turn you head when im behind you and i stomp it. Its only had minor repairs. Brakes,shocks,4WD Hubs,Head Lamp Bezel. Its paint is as clean as it will get. its not brand new but it still shines like new. GAS HOG all day but its upkeep is low. ITS FU N AS HELL TO DRIVE >........NUFF SAID!!

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

    Pros: Fun,Quick,Head turner,Reliable,Comfortable

    Cons: If its not mine!!

    Very Fun To Drive. — This explorer has no acceleation power but has a very stong engine. I put new brakes on it and spark plugs that sort of thing. This car pops when releasing the brake pedal. I have gotten into many recks with it so i bought a new front end on it and put it all on. The interior pretty nice but could always use some tlc. Gas mileage i get about 14 in town and 16 on high way. This car is easy to work on the really fun to mess around in.

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

    Pros: To get to point a to point b and to off road.

    Cons: The transmissions seem to go out a lot.

    A Good Daily Driver — Performance - slow acceleration, but the handling and the braking are top notch Appearance - Was rear ended a last January and no it has a different rear hatch on the vehicle that works quite nicely. Has some paint missing were the bug guard used to be, that thing was nasty to clean

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: to get around

    Cons: can't really avoid it
