Looks Good, But Will Cost You — transmission blew out early. seems to be a recurring problem with these vehicles. dealers and auto shops laugh at you when you bring the car in because they know about the transmission problems. please do not buy this car ever.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: space

Cons: repair work

Explorers. — Performance: In the time I've been driving my Explorer, it's performance has been quite excellent (To my standards, atleast.) It's braking, acceleration and handling are rather superb, especially for stock components. Build Quality: Only issue with 2002 Explorers as far as build quality is the rear panel, just underneath the rear window, has a reputation to crack just enough to notice, but repairing this part is futile, as it will only break again. Appearance: The Explorer's appearance has always been a welcoming sight among motorists. The only appearance issue I have with my Explorer is it's default rim's are a bit dull, both in design and color. But nothing some work time and cash can't fix. It's a matter of personal choice. Cost of Ownership: As far as I can tell, the Explorer's MPG is decent atleast, especially for me, who's primary use for the vehicle is picking up the lady, driving to class, going to the station and responding to emergencies. As far as fun factor, yes is all I have to say. It will be great once I can mount whacker lights and a radio onboard.

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

Pros: Everything.

Cons: It IS an SUV. (For all you hippies.)

Great Family Car — Great SUV, has it's quirks but overall is built well. Only problem is you are not able to pull a u-haul trailer with it. Fun to drive in any condition, gas mileage is as expected for something of this size

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: V8 engine, 4wd, 7 seater

Cons: none

Dunno — Not a bad car. MPG sucks though, Very comfortable and still pretty quick for a decent sized suv, I wish the damn lights and door sensors worked. Might buy another but i'm more into the little vehicles but still happy with it

Pros: comfy

Cons: MPG

Ford Explorer — The build is great. The acceleration is very good. The braking isn't that well but its still ok. I have only ever had one problem with the car after 1.5years. The car is fun to drive except you can do any ditty's or anything.

Pros: V8,4x4,

Cons: MPG

I Love My Exploder! — Love it because it's a gas guzzling anti green cruisin' machine! The height of luxury, heated leather seats, auto box, cruise...I'm King of the Road Oh, and the Rotty loves all that space in the back too Only drawback is the gas mileage, flippin' terrible, the price you pay for a bit of comfort I guess...

Pros: Comfort

Cons: economy

Good Car For A Big Family — I liked it but my now ex-wife thought is was to big. She was used to small cars like Pontiac Grand Ams. I liked the leg room in any of the seven seats. Great for children. Would be good for the PTA or soccer Mom scenarios, if room for extra children was needed.

Pros: Fits alot of people with plenty of leg room, for as big as it is gets good gas milage15-20

Cons: Not good for people used to small cars

Explorer — The performance of the car is very good. Has good power and the handling is good,m even off-road. My car has a black paint job with gray leather interior and looks really nice. Maintenance is not too bad, but the battery dies easily especially if you leave a light on for an hour or so.

Pros: Good V-8 Power

Cons: Battery needs replacing often

Awesome Suv — The Explorer is one of the best-selling SUVs for a reason! They are built Ford Tough and can handle everything, not to mention a luxurious ride. If you buy one used, they can be very cheap. Gas can be a pain, but overall, I love this truck! Great choice for an SUV

Pros: Exterior, Interior

Cons: Gas, Exterior
