I planned to buy a Ford Freestyle in 2006. However, when I went to the dealership, I had a chance to compare Freestyle and Explorer. After test driving of Explorer, I changed my mind. I bought it that day. Several months since I bought it, I love it more and more. It is great fun to drive it. I should say the Explorer is perfect in every aspect. Every time when I sit in my Explorer, I feel safe. I have also tested Toyota 4 Runner, Honda Pilot. Compared to the Explorer, they are not fun. I will buy Explorer again and again.
