2005 Ford Explorer SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The Explorer handles very solid. Has a short turn radius which makes parking a breeze. Is great in the mountains and open road. Have really enjoyed driving this vehicle.


Best Features

The solid feel it has on the road.


Worst Features

Air conditioned seats would be nice. The interior could be dressed up a bit.

Review

I bought this vehicle for my wife and she loves it. The new chrome wheels, step bars and roof rack really set it a part from the others. Gets lots of looks, and has the upgraded stereo that sounds great. Best sounding radio I have ever heard in a factory Ford. Had my doubts about the V-6 but it has plenty of power, although if I was going to do much pulling I would go with the V-8, but only 20 or so horse power difference. All the power the wife need to carry the baby and groceries.


Best Features

The color, which is the new Ivory. And the controls on the steering wheel are great once you get use to them.


Worst Features

Only thing I can think of is that I would prefer the fuel cap to be on the driver's side. When it is raining or really cold it stinks to have to run all the way around the car.
