Review

Bought this vehicle from my parents over a year ago. My mom used it for her main vehicle. Bought it with 183k miles on it, but I knew this vehicle's history since I was a kid when it was purchased. It now has 194k miles on it and it is running as good as new. Hasn't leaked one drop of any fluid. I routinely get 20-22 mpg with a mix of city/highway driving. Still nice to drive. Body has very little rust. Paint is still great. Wash/polish/wax as often as possible. This vehicle is a testament to what happens if you take care of a car. I expect to take this Explorer to 250k miles. Maybe more. One of the best Fords myself or my family has owned!


Best Features

Interior room, 4x4 is great with WI winters. Quiet, great fuel economy for an SUV.


Worst Features

Ride isn't as plush as other SUVs. More power would have been nice, but it does the job.

Review

Has the six cylinder in it. Ok on gas mileage, could be better. Never had a major break down. Still running strong at 147,000 miles.


Best Features

Running boards, cargo space, moon roof and luggage racks on top. Also love the rear a/c, and stereo controls.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. Also, fix the floating gas gage. (Floats at 1/3 tank and gives false readings).

Review

Bought used at 58K miles. Taken it to 110K. For when we bought it, it was a good car, in terms of ride and features. The ride's always felt a little vague and tippy, but that comes with the class. Great in snow. Had to deal w/the tire recall, multiple front end failures (ball joints X2, tie rods etc.) and now cruise control switch fire hazard. I've put in $5600 in repairs over 8 years (not including oil). $700 per year avg. We drive low mileage, around town, and follow maintenance schedules.


Best Features

4WD, absolutely. One of the easiest to use when we got it, and still works like a charm.


Worst Features

Engine is a little underpowered, and mpg horrid. Also, FORD quality doesn't compare to my Honda sedan. Two life-threatening issues: bad tires, and car-fire inducing cruise control switch.
