    My Ride — This is perfect for me...can pack half a house hold in there or put the seats up if you need to.

    Performance Is Great, Interior Is Better. — Even though it is a two-wheel drive Explorer, the engine makes it a great car. The auto 'box is pretty bad and seems mismatched as when I press hard on the accelerator, nothing happens until a second before you take the pressure off. Then the gearbox shifts, so when overtaking someone in traffic the task becomes impossible. However, one can take it easy because the stereo system is superb. Reliability in the interior section has been a little rough with parts of the steering wheel breaking off and the door either not opening or not locking. The brakes seem a little hard to press down, but do give confidence in stopping power.

    Pros: power, beauty, stereo

    Cons: interior reliability, MPG, ride

    Perfect — Well power wise, this truck doesnt have as much power as my 98 5.0. Acceleration.. its 4 wheel drive.. so yeah she can get going. it has a 4.0L V6 that makes 160hp at 4,200 rpm and gets 16 miles to the gallon. it was well kept on the inside and out besides a couple dents/scratches here and there. dark green like my eyes(; new tires all 4. maintenance wise i just got it and they put about 3k worth of new parts in her just for having the wrong fuel injectors in her. :/ xD so i havent had to work on her yet. fun factor.. its just a great truck for long drives or going to stores with not like my workhorse 98.

    Pros: the color matches my eyes, she drives/runs very well and is just a great truck overall. Baby Bella <3

    Cons: nothing... really nothing

    Eddie Bauer Explorer — This is a great SUV. It has leather, and a whole lot of gadgets. It has a back up beep system, tells me when the oil needs changing, how far I can go on the tank of gas, and the mpg. It has air conditioner controls in the back, as well as seperate radio controls for the rear passengers.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Roomy, great gadgets

    Cons: gas mileage, I am averaging 19.7 mpg, pretty good for a heavy SUV
