Overall:

Purchased a vehicle with Advantage. I had a awesome, and very easy car buying experience working with David G. I was in and out of the dealership with my new vehicle in just over an hour! Upon walking into the dealership my daughters and I were greeted and offered some cold beverages. Excellent dealership to work with I highly recommend Advantage auto direct!

This is a competent, attractive family hauler. Styling is exquisite and rewarding. Seats are the most comfortable in the industry.

Overall:

The Ultimate Snowboarding Assault Vehicle — What's the point of getting an SUV with 5-seats? That's just an oversized car that eats up more gas. That's why I got the Explorer. It has 7-seats and luxuriously appointed with a great tech convenience package. I have every bell and whistler Ford offers, so this rig beat out the QX60 and the GL450, and a few thousand cheaper.

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

Pros: Everything one could want out of an SUV

Cons: There's a bit of road noise at high speeds, so just pump the music louder.
