2004 Ford Explorer SUV Eddie Bauer AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first Explorer and I love it. Driving is a whole new experience. The vehicle is very comfortable and all the controls are easy to get to. The DVD system is designed great and my kids love the wireless headphones and remote. I usually trade vehicles quite often but I will have this one a LONG time!


Favorite Features

Heated seats, power moonroof, adjustable pedals, driver 1 and 2 setup, DOOR KEYPAD!


Suggested Improvements

Ability to adjust middle row seats forward and back. Auto up on driver window. Change location of cupholders in middle row.
