It's A School Car — I like that it is a four wheel drive vehicle and that it gets me from point A to point B and back to A. The two bad thing about this car are that it is a gas guzzler and that the throttle sticks.

Pros: 4x4

Cons: bad gas millege

Good Truck, Not Great — Ok vehicle. I wish it got better gas mileage. Handles very well and has so far been dependable. This truck gets about 15 mpg and has over 180,000 miles. I have had to replace front drive axle once and the O2 sensors are costly.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: goes anywher

Cons: gas mileage

Amazing. — I love this Tank. I call it the M1 A! "Abram". It has totaled three other cars and is still running like a champ. The interior look really nice. I love this beast. I have 2 10" subs powered by a 1,000 watt amp. Decent sounding system now.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, and reliable.

Cons: Nothing realy.

Firefighters Suv — My explorer is light blue and I have fun with it... For a SUV is has really good acceleration and even though it is a SUV it really does not have a lot of body roll. It is fun to drive and it gets about 20 mpg on average.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good room and good power

Cons: it is an SUV so the suspention wears faster than a sadan

She's A Hottie — Been a great truck so far. Amazing fuel economy considering how old it is. The little 4.0L needs to downshift when going up a hill, but it usually has enough pep when needed. It's fun enough, and has the sex appeal too. Pretty sound truck as well. Keep her maintained, and she'll treat you great.. don't maintain her, she'll still treat you good

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 24MPG from a 5600lb 98 SUV?  Pretty damn good

Cons: Doesn't have overwhelming power.. if you're looking for that, grab the Eddie Bauer edition with the 5.0L

Reliable And American — Quality is great on the ford explorer, feal as if it can go on forever. It is not a sportscar but you do feal it has power. The cost is a bit high due to the fact that it is heavy and poweful. And for gods sake get it in manual and you wont even want to drive a ferrari.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: reliablilty

Cons: gas
