2005 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We have had the vehicle for almost 4 years now and almost 78k miles and have had no complaints. We went to the dealer once for noise coming from the front of the vehicle and the dealer new exactly what it was and fixed it on an oil change. Something with the sway bar bushings. We have four kids and the room for seven is great. Here in the midwest we can get some good snow storms and this vehicle can get around with ease. The mileage could be alittle better. We get anywhere from 16-19 mpg depending on the time of the year. Our other vehicle is a 09 Sienna which we love as well, but I can certainly feel more quality with the Toyota, but for what we paid on the explorer it was a great buy

Favorite Features

Getting through the snow with the 4wd system

Suggested Improvements

Work on the 4.0 engine. It's a dog and the gas mileage could be alittle better.
