“I owned my explorer for 3 years and regreted selling...”

Written on: 27/03/2005 by simmy0ne (2 reviews written)

I owned my explorer for 3 years and regreted selling it for a Hyundai Santa Fe. The Hyundai is fine, but not a patch on the Ford. I have 2 kids and a dog. With the in-laws living 300 miles away comfort and performance was a big issue. With a roof box we actually ENJOYED travelling so much, we even bought a caravan, which the Explorer seemed to love towing. It had self adjusting suspension which sensed the load and leveled the jeep automaticaly. We also have a Mazda MX5 which is great fun to… Read Full Review

I and My wife love the explorer and would not be without it… Read Full Review

“The Performance and off road abilities of my Ford...”

Written on: 19/10/2001 by John Smith. (1 review written)

The Performance and off road abilities of my Ford Explorer go with its macho all-American styling. The car's very well-equipped. Gives 20 mpg if I'm lucky The costs of parts and servicing reasonable, but the depreciation was massive. My car has permanent four-wheel drive so it feels safe when driving. The self-leveling rear suspension works a treat, even though it's bouncy. The explorer is rather cumbersome to drive through town. The V6 engine packs a punch, although acceleration not… Read Full Review

Is this review copied almost word-for-word from Parkers or is it the other way around? http://www.parkers.co.uk/choosing/car_reviews/main_review.asp?model_id=383 !
