Best SUV Around! by Melissa, Houston on 10/19/2009. Trim: 2009 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4.0L 2WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I'm on my second Explorer, and this is by far the best car I've had. I think you also get more for your money with an Explorer. It handle's wonderfully, the interior is comfortable and the electronics are user friendly. For my situation, I feel it is very roomy and has enough space for packing and hauling. I also feel the gas mileage is great. I know it is an SUV and uses gas faster than a car, but I think it gets great gas mileage for the size. Lastly, Ford is a economically a solid company.
Cons: Honestly, none.
Overall review: I recommend an Explorer for anyone needing a midsize SUV.

Love my Explorer by David on 02/24/2013. Trim: 2009 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4.0L 2WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: For the money, it is hard to find a suv of this quality. True, there are others that get better fuel economy, but when you consider the price tag to get the additional mileage, the Explorer is the absolute winner. This is my fourth explorer and by far the best. I traded my last, a 2000, with 238,000 with only a transmission overhaul as a major expenditure.
Cons: You know, I have only one real complaint-Ford did not put my sun glass holder in the overhead controls, probably due to the sun roof.
Overall review: I would strongly urge everyone to try this vehicle before buying the more expensive gas savers.
