First Car

This is my first car and I love it. It is just the right size for me, I can take a couple friends or but the seats down and have plenty of room. Its also old enough that Im not extremely worried about it.

DANGEROUS AND SHOULD BE RECALLED

REGRET PURCHASING THIS 2004 FORD EXPLORER. I HAVE SPENT 5 YEARS PAYING 360 PAYMENTS TO HAVE IT ONLY END UP AS "JUNK". VERY UPSETTING AND DANGEROUS--PLEASE INVESTIGATE BEFORE SOMEONE IS INJURED OR KILLED. PLEASE CONSIDER ME FOR A 'GOODWILL REPAIR'. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS AND PLEASE MAKE A DIFFERENCE. SAVE A LIFE.

my impression is that it is a great commuter.

what I like is that it rides smooth, brakes are smooth. power everything and it all works. great in snow and rain. the only thing I don't like is that its an suv. been more of a manual transmission CAR kind of guy.

Overall this is a good hardworking car.

I am selling my car simply because I need a 3rd row SUV. (remember, we are a large family) The gas mileage is not good but gets me where i need to go. Would never take it on a long trip ride.

if you aren't pinching pennies, then this is a reliable and comfortable ride

Like the comfort and 4x4. Always started, even when it was 20 below. Cargo space is more than enough for what most would need. Plus, there is enough room to put all three of our childrens carseats into the back seat.
