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

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???
