2004 Ford Explorer SUV XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This SUV is truely built "Ford Tough." It lives up to the standers that the Ford Motor Company is known for. The XLS model is built for 5 and is confortable for a small family that requires a spacious vehical. The fuel economy is ok for an SUV and it's also very confotable. This is a vehical for a family with a smaller budget that wants to enjoy a quality vehical!


Favorite Features

Standard CD player, airconditionind, power door/windows, and other useful equiptment make the Explorer XLS an SUV that is worth what you pay for.


Suggested Improvements

I would suggest that the Explorer be wider so that there would be a more space to seat the 3 passangers in the back seat more confortably.

Review

Gas mileage is poor. Turning is unsteady as front wheels thump when sharp turning is necessary. I have had to have this vehicle towed to the dealer because the key lost its program. The key needed to be reprogrammed. The tow truck driver had towed other 2004 Explorers with the same problem in my area. Otherwise it is very much functional for my needs.
