    Awesome — Terrible rear suspension. Ford only put in 1 rear leaf spring in some models causing the rear to sag. 4 abs sensors lead to rediculous lights on the dash and a pulsing in the pedal. Amazing off-road and in the snow. Sounds Great and Can take a beating. Lives up to its name Built Ford Tough.

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

    Pros: powerful, fun to drive

    Cons: Gas and tiping

    I Wish I Never Sold This Car — I loved this truck. I put over $10,000 dollars into this truck in the course of 5 years. It was great for off roading and rock climbing but not so great for daily driving, especially at high speeds on the interstate. The steering box still needed some work as well as other steering components. Overall, it was unlike any other Explorer around and looked great with no body damage even after all of the off road trips I put her through.

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

    Pros: Definitely a head turner and lots of fun

    Cons: Hard to drive

    Amazing Quality, Great Buy. — Love it. Has about 250km on it, needed minimal work and this has seen true off road! Gas mileage in city isn't the greatest, but amazing on hwy. Acceleration pedal sticks a little. Paint has lasted, and minimal rust on back hatch. I do wish it had a more aggressive look.

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

    Pros: quality, reliability, 4wd, highway gas mileage, roomy

    Cons: city gas mileage, jumpy gas pedal

    Excellent Performance And Quality — Very good brakes, pretty good acceleration, looks really good because I have HID headlights and window tint, nothing has broken because it's a FORD,about 15mpg (I have a lead foot) really fun to drive, best in class easily, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for fun.

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

    Pros: It easily does a burnout for an SUV

    Cons: Nothing its a FORD! I could use a V8
