P.o.s Winter Beater — At first I really liked driving it, but then the brakes went out, the tranny went out, the eletric window motors went out, the radio sounded fuzzy. Bought it for 600 and made it 3 months before the motor blew out and i let it go to the scrap yard.

Pros: Nice overall ride high, people didnt seem to cut you off as much.

Cons: Lots of blind spots. And its a Ford. That doesnt have the name Mustang on the side.

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

Another Nice Make By Ford. —

This is a great truck. I bought mine in the picture for $995 and it was a steal, especially when 4x4 aren't cheap. It handles really nice and actually has the shortest turn radius that I've ever experienced, and that is really nice. Can turn on a dime. It's a smooth ride for the most part and it has a strong build. It's a little slow on acceleration if you hold the pedal steady going up a big hill, but floor it and it'll go anywhere. It brakes really well, too and have no trouble with that. I've had to fix the power steering because there was a leak where the metal corroded, but that wasn't a big deal. Almost all V-6 motors made by Ford like this one have a small leak in the engine, but you will never notice or have a problem with it the whole time that the truck is alive. The dashboard is a little squeaky on chatter bumps, but I have no idea what mine went through before I got it, so it really depends. I think that the Sport is a very attractive. I like a lot more than the four door Explorers. It's short enough that you won't bottom out or hit your bumpers on the ground as easily when going over big bumps or ditches. They do get a little rusty, or at least the ones in Michigan do, but that is because of our harsh winters. Mine is only rusty on the rocker panels and a spot on the tailgate. The inside is very nice. The back seats fold down and is level with the back cargo space, and you could easily fit a full size mattress in there with the back seats down. The steering wheel is a little in your face if you have short legs like me, but other than that it is roomy. Gas mileage can get costly. I get about 15 mpg, but in the winter I get less because of letting the car warm up. With gas prices at $2.60 like now, I probably fill it up for about $45 and I get about 250 miles on a tank. That is the biggest con, I think. This truck is very fun to drive and with a nice set of tires, it will take you anywhere. My boyfriend's dad hates Fords and took mine for a spin the other day (and there's 3 feet of snow on the ground at the moment) and he was ecstatic at the fact that it gets around better in 2WD than his S10 does in 4WD, so it's amazing in 4WD, too, obviously.

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

Pros: Powerful, fun, attractive, roomy, etc.

Cons: Gas mileage.

Bucket Of Bolts — Great in the Snow other than that though. Gas Guzzler 17-19 mpg. Maintenance can be a constant annoyance. Apperance its ugly witha huge scratch on one side. Inside its ok when all clean. Brakes new, acceleration good, excellent handling.

Pros: Good performance

Cons: Appearance and Costs of Ownership

Ford Really Sucks — My car eats way too much gas and repairs are expensive on an SUV especially this one, the transmission has already needed replacing, I would not buy this car ever again. Top heavy car, doesn't corner well at all. U-turns need to be taken carefully. The only plus is that because of its size and solid frame I should fair well in a crash. Just another shoddy product of ford.

Pros: If I hit another car I would be sure to come away uninjured

Cons: It sucks, and nothing about the car is cheap

Nice Size, Feel Secure Driving Him! Lol — i love all the luxury of my "truck", all the gizmos and gadgets, tells me when to add gas and oil... kids love the back climate control... i love the power everything and leather seats, come in handy after taking the kids and dogs to the lake or camping. Only thing i hate... is the rusting under the running boards!

Pros: lots of great options

Cons: rust

This Truck Makes For A Great Winter Beater. Better Than Elvis Stojko On Ice. — This is the truck all mini trucks should be modeled after

Pros: 4wd traction control, automatic climate control, power everything, digital readouts, well placed user input controls.

Cons: Leather seats, light suspention, weak frame, V-6 4.0L
