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

Review

I've had my '05 almost three months, traded in a 98' 2WD with 96k and very few problems. The greatest disapointment is the terrible gas mileage-14.2 avg. is the best I've had so far. My 2WD got 17-20 mpg on avg. which ends up being aprox. 2 fillups a week vs. every 1 1/2-2 wks. with 2WD, Knew 4WD would be worse but not that much difference. Would not recommend this vehicle to anyone on a tight budget

Best Features

Lighted controls in steering wheel. Body style. Low profile back window lifts to open vs. lifting entire tailgate or lowering window.

Worst Features

Improved gas mileage! Smoother ride. Better quality control. Back passenger's window stopped working - with less than 23,000 miles on vehicle.
