Comfortable Riding Car As Long As It Maintain — I brought the car with a blown speaker. Had a new speaker and system put in, now my inside light goes off and on (had to disconnect roof lights). door ajared on even though doors are closed. Door locks goes off and on automatically. No heat in the winter (heater core don't leak and no fogging). advise received to replace the heater coil (cost 750.00 to 1,000.00 or trying flushing cost 80.00 to 120.00) with no guarentees on flushing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great 4 wheel drive in winter

Cons: sucks that car is used and obviously never taken care of. now i have all the break downs.

Would Be Okay If It Was A Had A Smaller Engine And The Previous Owner Took Better Care Of It — Don't like the fact it's a gas guzzler. Drives well, but too many mechanical problems after only having the vehicle two and half years (one small problem after another). Haven't had any extremely major problems. Overall like the truck since it's my first, but think I'll go with something other than a ford next time (now that i'm experience in driving suv). like the feeling of high riders.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Main reason I have this vehicle is ex-spouse wouldn't take it

Cons: Reason to avoid this particular car, it guzzle the gas like water.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great towing. just a nice suv. roomy .

Cons: for some reason the piece of plastic behind the back window on the outside of the suv was coming off?

2 Explorers Down... Will There Be More In My Future? — Great car. This is my second explorer. My first was a 1995 EB Explorer. I decided to get this 2002 because I was in need of cargo space and reliability. This car has been a joy to drive over the last 8 years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cargo space

Awesome Car, My Family Has Had 4 Explorers And We Loved Every Single One Of Them — Performance:handling- it handled like a car with AWD. tight cornering, little body roll. Build Quality: I put about 15k miles on the car when i had it and it never needed anything but a new tail light. Cost of Ownership: the only thing i had trouble paying for was the gas...i think it just needed a tune up

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

Pros: great 4x4, awesome styling, extremely comfy for long trips

Cons: gas mileage

Love My Explorer. — Goes through the snow like hot knife through butter even without the 4-wheel drive!! This is my second Explorer, and I bought it on the reputation of the first one, which, with 210,000 miles, is still going strong! (I still own the first one, a '92, and will keep it until it begs for mercy.) A few cons - the soft plug is very expensive to replace on the 4.0 liter engine. It looks like an 89-cent part, but due to its location, cost $270 in labor charges to get to it. I'm not happy with the cloth interior as everything sticks to it like velcro. And the posts between the rear side windows and back window are getting dull, a problem that has been happening since 1992 apparently. I will most likely always drive an Explorer. They're roomy, comfortable, dependable and easy for everyone to get in and out of.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good gas mileage, LOVE the ride the independent rear suspension provides, dependable, LOVE driving it in the snow before the streets are plowed.

Cons: The cloth interior, the fading back window posts. I mean, if Dodge can make those panels fade-free, why can't Ford??

I Would Recommend This As Car As A Workhorse, Go Up A Few Price Points For Luxury. — Has been a good vehicle for this price range. No major repairs, just maintenance. Performance: needs a V8, good braking, good suspension, good gas mileage. It is utilitarian to drive. If you want a better ride and more luxury, go up a couple of price points and go for the lexus SUV.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: To haul stuff (Scuba gear, friends, landscape stuff)

Cons: If you want a nicer look, smoother ride, and more luxury...
