2005 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This is my first SUV. The Eddie Bauer is a great looking truck, with great interior room and features. I like sitting high and the view over other vehicles.
The audio system, view of the road, rear back-up sensor, rear heating/cooling system.
Very poor gas mileage, especially with E85, which gets a third less mileage than gas. The mileage is so bad that I don't take the car on trips. The vehicle rides very roughly. I would prefer a softer ride. The front seat cupholders are too large and have openings that allow the cups to tip.
