Ford Explorer 2002 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Explorer here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Au falcon or explorer?
The AU copped plenty of flak for the way it looked, but it wasn't a bad car. There is no reason to believe it is any better or worse than any other recent Falcon. The mechanical package is the same, so I wouldn't dismiss it on that basis. Looks are a different thing, and the value of AU series cars is way, way down on other similar cars. That's an advantage if you're buying, but a disadvantage if you're selling. It's hard to give you any advice about the Explorer without knowing what you intend to do with it. If you want a heavy-duty four-wheel-drive for some serious off-roading, then I would look to the big Japanese models, but if you want it for around-town use, I would go for one of the compact wagons on offer.
