    Love My Limited Explorer — I went from a small Soob sedan to my Explorer. I don't know why I haven't been driving one all along. I LOVE my Explorer. I live in a rural northern area, where there is snow, ice, wind and lots of travel on gravel or dirt roads. This vehicle is built for this lifestyle. Inside, the limited is absolutely gorgeous. Mine now has 86K on it and no problems. I'm thinking that in a year or so, I'll trade this in for yet another.

    Pros: all of the limited edition's bells & whistles, the no-fail ride on rough roads and through snow/ice

    Cons: the gas consumption

    Great Used Truck — I bought this car 16 months ago and it had 68,000 miles on it. It is in excellent condition with no rust whatsoever. The acceleration and braking is average; the handling is good. I have needed no repairs and have had only oil changes so far. The gas mileage is what you would expect for a truck, around 22-23 miles per gallon. I wouldn't say this is a "fun" car to drive, but it definitely exceeded my expectations when I purchased it. Overall, I would give my vehicle a B+.

    Pros: Appearance has stayed good and mileage is acceptable

    Cons: None

    One Great 2000 Ford Explorer Limited — Unbelievable value. Purchased new in early 2000 and have averaged ~18k miles per year. Repairs...minimal. Standard maintenance, two brake jobs, one suspension job, and purchased tires once. (ok, i'm cheating on this one..Ford replaced the original Firestone's at 38k miles). SUV has all the bells and whistles and is still a joy to drive. Great V8 performance, yet averages ~23 mpg on the highway and ~18 mpg overall. I got lucky on this one...this has been the my absolute best vehicle experience and value!

    Pros: Dependable, fun to drive, good fuel efficiency (~18 mpg overall) even with V8 engine, top of the line

    Cons: can't buy another one

    Want Newer Model Of Same. — I like it but would like a newer one with more safety features. Maybe better gas mileage. Handles like a Ranger but I guess that's because it is built on the same frame. Love how high it sits so I can see everything around me. Hope I can trade soon for same but newer!

    Pros: Great to see everything around me.

    Cons: Bumpy ride.

    Decent Truck For The Money... — I have owned this vehicle for about 4 years and have put on about 50,000 miles and I have to say that it has been pretty worry free. Good in the snow and it's nice to be up off the ground a little. It gets a little cramped sometimes because of how tall I am, but overall a good vehicle.

    Pros: Versatility of the midsize SUV is great.

    Cons: Would be nice to get at least 20 mpg on the highway with a V6.

    Great Car For A Guy Who's Always On The Go — This car is perfect for me! I'm an all around versatile guy who does a little bit of everything. this vehicle performs wonderfully whether i'm hauling my guitar equipment around or pulling a fishing boat. on it's own, it has great power for a 4000lb SUV, 0-60 in around 8 seconds. the suspension is a little loose but i lowered mine a few inches, with no cost for parts, and now it handles great, although the ride is slightly rougher. had the vehicle for 2 years with no major problems, this SUV is the PERFECT balance between Sporty and Utility, getting the best of both worlds. it's very fun to drive and the interior has everything i could ever need.

    Pros: versatility, fun to drive, reliability, looks

    Cons: gas mileage, ride quality

    Clean — The only thing I hate is gas mileage ! I race it from time to time .I've win many times . I've got hit and had no damage to my ride.I paid $12,000 cash . It had 24,000 miles when I got it and now it has 105,900 miles. Smooth ride but does have high roll over risk. Not something for a first time buyer !

    Pros: It's fast, runs like new,looks hot !

    Cons: gas mileage blows .

    This Is My Dad's Main Car — and its been one of the best cars we have ever owned. Very few mechanical problems at 140,000 miles. 4wd is fun in the winter, lots of cargo space, good towing capacity with trailer package. We have the limited trim line with 4.0 L V6, part time automatic 4wd, 5 speed automatic transmission, trailer package.

    Pros: Tons of cargo space, reliable, practical

    Cons: Crap for gas milage
