My Explorer has been a great ride for
the past five years. No problems of
any kind. There were a couple of
recalls, but nothing worrisome. (Mine
came with GoodYears). I got a sunroof,
a nice cloth interior, the expected
ammenities, and everything worked well
together. The engine and transmission
are smooth. It's been to Florida and
back twice, and was trouble-free. I
actually felt safe driving this vehicle
in all conditions. Good in the snow up
north too, and 4WD has been perfect.
I really like the seats in this truck.
I got the lumbar and power buttons, and
use them often. Great thigh support
too. Not half a seat, like my last
More sound-deadening material under the
hood, and an effort at better mileage.
I'd buy another Explorer in a minute,
but the depreciation on this one has
held me back. I will lease the next
one, but not for another 5 years or so,
unless I start having problems.
