I purchased this vehicle after owning an Explorer for about 4 years. I wanted something a little bigger to haul kids, friends, dogs. Explorer didn't have 3rd seat yet. I love this car. We've driven it a long time for family trip, etc. including 2 large dogs. I love this car, it's just time to start looking for something newer and with a 3rd seat that folds in instead of has to be taken out (very heavy).
The look of the 4WD is so much cooler than the 2WD. I love my CD changer (10 disk). I will miss that the most.
I'm glad they went to a 3rd seat that folds into the car and doesn't have to be taken out.
