I know it's odd, but the Explorer has been my favorite car. Had a '94, '99, and now '03. Best vehicle for all of my needs, and always getting the job done.
Now they move to a smaller chassis, lower clearance, decreased towing capacity, all to better "meet the market". Fuel economy is great, but not when I can 't do what I need to get done. Wonder if I can still order a 2010 before this disaster comes out. Seems more like they're using the name and status of Explorer to push a new CUV, I'm bummed.
