"This 2005 Ford Explorer has been a fantastic vehicle for me. Very reliable, very comfortable, I got the V8 so it has great acceleration for this size of vehicle. I can't think of a single thing to complain about."

"I have always driven large vehicles, vans and trucks...surbanbands...vanagons...explorers. We have a large family. I have enjoyed my Explorer. Well, the kids have grown up and moved away, so we don't need such a large capacity vehicle. I'm sure I'll miss it when it's gone. LONG LIVE SUV'S!!!"
