Why it's on the list: Repairs; Insurance; Depreciation
So how does the Ford Explorer compare to the Ford F350 Super Duty Crew Cab, the second Ford on our list? For starters, they both have a high insurance rate. Also, they both have a high depreciation value, so when it comes time to sell, you won't get what you paid for, but much less. Unlike the insurance rates that are on par, the depreciation rate is much higher on the Explorer. Although that would make the F350 seem like a decent choice, you also have to factor in the cost of repairs. Those repairs won't be cheap, and when you combine all three factors, you're faced with a money pit that you could've avoided if you didn't purchase this vehicle.
