Vehicle

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

Review

Great vehicle, fun to drive on all roads and in all weather. Wonderful utility, best utility of any mfg in type class. Good service experience at dealer. Reasonable economy for this type vehicle given what is available on the market today. Has Class II hitch and tow package, handles trailers very well. Great brakes - lasted 50,000 miles before replacing pads on front, rears still on. Great overall vehicle and we checked all makes prior to buying this Ford product.

Favorite Features

Zippy 4.0 V-6, good computer control of transmission and torque converter, great suspension-not much to improve upon-great cornering ability, very stable, always sense the car is under you to stay

Suggested Improvements

There is more to be obtained from the existing motor and transmission by modifying the ecu computer settings. Should be done although not bad as it is now, just could be better and even more fun to drive. HVAC vents to driver and passenger foot wells badly out of balance, too much heat on passenger.
