    Ford Got This One Right. I Love It. — I absolutely love my 94 Ford Explorer. It's 16 years old and the only thing, other than routine maintenance, that I have had to do to it was to replace the cheesy fiber lower intake manifold gasket, as it was leaking coolant. Do yourself a favor and use the metal one that Ford now offers. Although the 1st generation Explorer's have all the aerodynamics of a shoebox, Ford did a great job of blending style and function, with this rugged little utilitarian vehicle. It gets around in the snow like nobody's business, and has towed a good many sub compacts (and a few full sized 4X4s) out of assorted snowbanks. I was leery about "pushbutton" 4 wheel drive (never had one before), but I'm a fan now. She starts to spin a little, just push the button, 4X4 engages and off you go. She's not once left me sit. Take care of it, and it'll take care of you. I do, however, wish that the engine had a bit more power, but that's the only thing that I'd change about this well built, rugged and durable piece of equipment.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Durable, rugged and dependable

    Cons: MPG But, it's an SUV. It's what it is.

    It Runs Great. — It was Dad's idea in the first place ;). HE said it runs much smoother than the 2000 F-150 truck. We got it at a reasonable price, and it haven't let me down at all, especially on long-distance travel. For the gas mileage, for example, it took 1/4 of the gas with the distance between Yorkton and Saskatoon. Overall, I don't think I want to let it go, but if the SUV ever fall apart, yes, I could get it "OVERHAULED".

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great space, has 4x4 drive.

    Cons: Why would you want to avoid this SUV?  Nothing really wrong with it.

    1994 Ford Explorer — The outside was starting to rust around the wheels & the interior seats were pretty beat up. The speakers were blown, but other than that it drove wonderfully. It was fun to go over bumps with & drive with alot of people.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4WD, handled snow beautifully

    Cons: speakers, interior, a/c didn't work

    Good But Not Great — Just the color the hood doesn't match the body. The windows don't work. The good thing is it has ac, and it's in good condition. It takes us long distances just not that much room. But it's ok, needs to have more room and fixed up more.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Cons: windows

    Sploder — Total garbage. Of course, that was it's main purpose. Bought the car for a grand, strictly for driving on the beach and in the mud. It refused to pass inspection, shook like an epileptic once you hit 60mph, and was permanently out of alignment. Sold it to a junkyard a few weeks ago.

    Pros: Umm, it could run over trees and ford rivers.

    Cons: Everything else.
