I bought my Explorer 2 years used and have had it for 11 years. It has been extremely reliable with only the expected maintenance issues of a vehicle over time. If I had a child of driving age I would definitely consider this vehicle as a great option!
The ride, the feel, really I love everything about this vehicle!
Ability to turn 4 wheel drive completely off if necessary.
