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


Review

Unlike those car-based SUVs that are
nothing more than glorified station
wagons the Explorer combines real truck
capabilities (such as off-road and
towing) with luxury sedan comforts.


Best Features

V8 power, 290 watt stereo system, independent rear and interior ergonomics.


Worst Features

A DVD Navigation System and a flatter folding third row seat.

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!


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.

2004 Ford Explorer SUV XLT AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


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.
