Loved my last 2 explorers, wanted better economy and all the tech stuff the Escape offered. It is back in the shop for the second time in one week for a problem with the transmission disengaging while driving on the freeway. Pulled over and would not go over 10 mph. Very scary!! Said it needed computer update, but did it again 6 days later.Not sure about Ford quality anymore.
SYNC, good visibility, no blind spot, the way the back seats fold down and the Gas mileage
Make sure ALL computer updates are ran before cars are sold. better lumbar support.
