2003 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I do not own the Explorer I am rating, it is my friends. I have driven it, and am impressed with the 4.6L V8's power. I have also ridden in the third row, and it is rather well designed. At 6'1", I was suprised at the room I had back there. The seat seemed to be slightly angled, to prevent knees from hitting the back seat, and I rather enjoyed the somewhat reclined position. Overall, I was and still am rather impressed. I will be looking for a new vehicle soon, and the Explorer/Mountaineer tops my list.

Favorite Features

The best trick is flooring it coming out of a corner. The tires won't screech, but after you have comitted this action once, you will realize you don't need a huge gap in traffic for this car.

Suggested Improvements

My only complaint is that the in-dash CD changer takes too long to cycle to an open spot or eject/accept a CD
