Review

This has been a great SUV for my family. The vehicle handles well and has excellent pick up. It has been very reliable. I must say, on the negative side, that the overhead instrument panel display lights went out and the moonroof frame came out, however it did not affect the operation. Those are about the only problems we have had and we have had the vehicle for 4 years. I put a captain's bed in the vehicle and I am amazed at the cargo capacity. I know the Explorers have a bad reputation for rolling so I am very careful but all in all I love the vehicle.


Favorite Features

Cargo space. Ease in putting seats down in rear. Easy handling.


Suggested Improvements

Improved gas mileage.

Review

We've had nothing but problems with this car. The electrical systems fail constantly. We've had problems with the lights, the brakes, the turn signals, the power doors, the transmission, and the gauges.


Favorite Features

The leather interior is nice. We live in the desert where temps can be 120, but the seats stay cool. The kids have their own A/C controls in the back, too. One-touch button rolls down the driver window, without holding it down - a nice feature at the drive-through.


Suggested Improvements

One-touch button to roll the window back up would be nice. Fix the electrical problems!

Review

OWNING THE EB EXPLORER HAS BEEN THE GREATEST EXPERIENCE IN VEHICLE OWNERSHIP. IT PRACTICALLY SPEAKS TO ME! I CAN BUS CHILDREN TO SCHOOL THEN LOAD UP THE BACK WITH FURNITURE, CHEERLEADING AND FOOTBALL EQUIPMENT. THE VERSITILITY OF THE VEHICLE IS INCREDIBLE. I COULD NEVER OWN A CAR AGAIN. MY NEXT VEHICLE WILL BE AN EB EXPLORER.


Favorite Features

THE COMPUTER, DIMMING REARVEIW MIRROR, AND STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS OH YEA, THE BACK SEAT RADIO CONTROLS.
