    Excelent Suv — Great vehicle. learned to drive on it and compare all other cars to it. Handling is sturdy, needs to take sharp turns slower but that is expected. Easy to do small maintainence but costs a fourtune to take to a shop. Can hit a buck at 50+ mph and only break a headlamp cover.

    Pros: Solid and safe cab. Rides smoothly, If driven right can get up to 20 mpg

    Cons: expensive to fill up, but low cost to buy now.

    It Is An Okay Car. — It is pretty comfy. Has tan swede interior and pearly white paint. runs pretty smoothly. I don't really know how many miles. It gets about 20 miles to the gallon which isn't to shabby. It isn't real fast or slow. Carries 5 people and has a V6 engine. More comfy in back seat than in the front.

    Pros: Comfortable, plenty of room.

    Cons: More comfortable on the back seat than the two front seats.

    My Exploder — I love my explorer. It'll take me anywhere i want to go I just put some brand new 31x10.50 BFG All Terrain TA's on it. I have 196 thousand miles on it and it still runs great. It's not fast by any means but it has enough torque to haul my boat or my trailer. i have had to do some work on it. but power steering pumps and ball joints will always always go out any car. the only thing i don't like about it, is the gas mileage. I drove all interstate on one tank of gas and i averaged 14 miles a gallon with the cruise set at 65. and it doesn't have the 5.0 or the 4.6L v8's. i have the 4.0L Over Head Valve V6 . Overall I love the truck

    Pros: Reliability. and Agility

    Cons: Horsepower. and gas mileage

    Functional And Took A Beating — Did OK but ran into a value issue at 116,000 miles which is pretty bad. My options were replacing both heads for $1,600 + of Marvel Mystery Oil. I choose the latter which got the engine to last another 15,000 miles, but the 'Check engine light is back on and inspection is due... I need a new car and am unlikely to get another Ford after this experience. It's too bad, aside from the engine problems it was a good truck

    Pros: Could haul a lot.

    Cons: Engine had problems after only 116,000 miles.  I know people with Hondas with over 200,000 miles that can't kill them...

    This Was My First Car, I Loved Theresa, But She Was A Pos — No one forgets their first car, and this was my dream car at the time. I got it senior year in HS and was in love. That was, until everything started falling apart. Hoses, sensors, even the rear glass fell apart. Although, she made it to LA twice, tahoe, and many other places without so much as a peep.

    Pros: looks, power, turning radius, MPG

    Cons: Dependability

    The Smoke Still Lingers 10 Years Later — Every Explorer is different. Mine in particular is a love-hate relationship. It's 10 years old so it certainly needs/has had its share of repairs. Aside from that however, I love everything about it. The '02 Explorer I had before this one is a little quicker, but it can still giddyup when it needs to. I've added a K&N filter and flowmaster 40 w/ 2.5'' pipes to give the 4.0L some breathing room, as well as an Almani 800W 4 channel amp, Kenwood headunit, and 4 Alpine 5x7's at 250W a piece to enhance my own experience.

    Pros: surprisingly capable off-road, comfy interior

    Cons: low MPG
