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

Review

This is a vehicle supplied to me from my employer. It is a lot of fun to drive and also very comfortable. Both interior and exterior appointment blend nicely. My only complaint is the dealership. The running board is a third party one and no by Ford. It is narrow and has actually been put on backwards by the dealership. They say they will fix it, but that was two weeks ago... and nothing. The second complaint is that the car was supposed to come with factory mats and they weren't. Again, Framingham Ford promised to get me factory mats ASAP. It's been over a month and still no mats, despite follow up phone calls. This is my second experience with "don't care" Ford Dealerships!

Best Features

Interior Comfort

Worst Features

Better mileage per gallon. I am only getting about 16.5 MPG. Most of my driving is highway. Hopefully this will improve as the engine gets broken in... but then again maybe not.
