Old And Sturdy — that suv drove over every type of snow lol even in reverse, i just loved it cause it was my dads who passed away and he loved it soooo much it meant the world to me, i drove it very proud and was heartbroken when i traded her but she wasnt gonna pass inpection and i had nowhere to store her .... powerful ride ugly on the outside accelerated great, brakes were magnificent for an older vehicle, handled well, very sturdy build, all around ugly looks lol, mpg sucked, just needed oil pretty much, well this car had an alignment problem from the get go but if i pulled on the sterring wheel just left of center i was able to compensate.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: dependable, tough, powerful, common for parts if needed

Cons: ugly, poor mpg

Will Buy Another One. — A great SUV...have it for a long time now, mostly cargo. Has given great service, only a few broken items. A/C failed a couple of years ago , easy fix. P/W motors have failed twice. Regular oil changes has kept it in the clear .

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

Pros: Great service thru the years.

Cons: Lack of power.

1996 Ford Explorer — This truck is a real beast! The 4wd is amazing! The only downside is the cost of gas. The maintinance cost is minimal. This is the most solidly built car I have ever owned. If you want a good on/off road vehicle, this is it! Especially off road!!! Buy one today!

Pros: Off road capabilities

Cons: Gas cost

Ford Explorer Sport — I'm pretty satisfied with my Explorer, I'm not by any stretch of the imagination an expert, but I like it. It gets about 21 MPG, handles well, and is roomy without being bulky. I give it about an 8 out of 10. Not as fun to drive as a small car, but better than a large SUV.

Pros: Roomy, comfortable,

Cons: Chipping paint, high miles

Great Suv — great truck. its 12 years old and still runs great. the manual transmition gets great fuel economy. things are startin to break, but what can you expect of a 12 year old truck with seventy thousand miles on it that has been used as much as this one. i inherited it from my dad when he got a new car so it didnt coast a penny. it has great acceleration and towing capacity and performs well on the highway.

Pros: great fuel economy, sound system, and towing capacity

Cons: a little old but when new, was virtually a perfect truck
