    Nice Ride — Great for loading up and heading out to the beach. Performs well and great in the snow. Actually wonderful in alot of snow. Great in summer months. Smooth ride with good mirror vision and roomy interior. Good buy used or new.

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

    Pros: Comfort

    Cons: Gas

    2001 Ford Explorer — Bought this vehicle after I left a job that provided a company vehicle. The vehicle was ok for my transportation needs by commuting to work and back, but I question its reliability and safety after it was involved in a 50 mph crash on I-70 and the SRS bags did not deploy. In addition, the belt tensioners did not work properly and sent my head over the wheel and into the windshield. Don't think I will own one again.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4x4 and SUV cargo

    Cons: SRS system in question

    Comfy Gas Prices? — This truck is smooth on the road. It is very comfy. It just gets bad gas milage. But other than than I love this truck. It has a lot of trunk space also. I would recommend getting this as a first car for our kid.

    Pros: comfy

    Cons: bad gas milage

    Two Words - Gas Guzzler — Bought this when I purchased my first home. Thought I got a good deal until the second week when I realized I was getting only 12 MPG. DON'T buy a 4WD vehicle unless you don't have to eventually pay for your kids' college education.

    Pros: Very comfy ride, DVD player, Great sound system

    Cons: 12 MPG - need I say more???

    Loved this SUV. In fact, I'm getting another one (2014 or 2015)! Preferred to drive it over our second car, which is a sporty and fun-to-drive 300Z. Leather and 4WD a big plus but not "must haves". Li... Read More

    Good Vehicle. By Ken

    Could use a little more power. The 3.5L V6 is just not quite enough. However, I'm sure my mileage is much better than if it had a V8, so I'm not really complaining all that much. Otherwise, a very nic... Read More
