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

Review

The 2004 Explorer XLS is a great deal for the money. The new body style brought in with the 2000 model adds much more stability and roominess to the vehicle. I am still surprised by its great turning radius, particularly for its size. Sound system is great. Cabin in surprisingly quiet cruising through town, but there is noise when driving on the freeway, as it isn't very aerodynamic. There does need to be an improvement upon gas mileage - the Explorer's Japanese competitors are much better in this area.

Best Features

Great sound system and all the standard features (i.e. tinted windows, A/C, power doors/windows, anti-theft, cruise control, etc.).

Worst Features

Gas mileage needs to be better - but, I am of that opinion of all vehicles. Rear A/C should be standard on all body trim styles, as should the luggage rack crossbars. And, fix the darn gas guage meter - it is often slow to update after refueling and is just annoying.
