Very Reliable Truck/suv — The only things I didn't like about this car is the radio display doesn't work and the back wipers don't fully work. Otherwise it's a perfect truck/SUV for everyday commuting, it's surprisingly good on gas too. I highly recommend the 2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling is very good, breaks are great, seats are very comfortable (their heated), the exterior looks (in my opinion) fantastic, I love the way it looks.

Cons: The biggest con I have with it is that the radio display doesn't work, ive tried two different stereos and they both didn't work. Other cons...oh the back wipers don't clean the whole window, only half of it. No other cons

Exceptional For Experiensed Drivers. — it is a v8 all wheel drive. th only down fall is that the cab is small, and the undercarriage is rusty. has a sticky accelerator so you have to add more pressure to it every so often. it is really fun to drive it is just the smooth leather seats are a problem when we hit a pot hole or go over a curb

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the v-8 and awd

Cons: the sticky eccelerator

Love It — Lifted 2" all around. Brown wire modification for the 4wd. Gets about 19 miles per gallon highway. Fun to take off-road. Drives great in the snow. The only time I got stuck was because I needed new tires and couldn't get enough traction.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 4WD

Cons: Mileage could be better

Good Vehicle. By Ken
