"This vehicle is just what my wife and I wanted. So we though. Roomy interior, excellent inside, comfortable, all the bells and whistles. BUT.... this is the 2nd Ford explorer, at 93k miles, has needed MAJOR engine repairs totaling this time, over $3000. I will never own another one, ever. as long as I live. The first one, ended it's life at 93000 due to the camshaft seals allowing the crank shaft something or another, to have the engine pulled - fixed and replaced. THIS one, just had a timing belt issue, which ruined the engine. NOT A happy camper."

"We leased the Explorer LTD, and at the end of our 3 year lease, we purchased the vehicle. I am a 60 year old grandma, and I just LOVE this car. It "turns on a dime" - the driving radius is incredible. It is extremely comfortable to sit in, I feel safe in this vehicle. I will be purchasing a NEW Explorer within the next few months! I can not imagine life without an Explorer. It is PERFECT for hauling our toddler grandson and all of his "gear"! We babysit him everyday, and the Explorer has been fantastic."
