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

Review

Bought Explorer new. No major problems at all. Some small issues, tire pressure sensor malfunction, gas cap sensor cause service soon light on, but nothing worse in 5 years' time. Never stranded or stalled, been most reliable vehicle so far after bad luck with a few GMs, still runs good as new. Gas mileage not bad for V8, avg 16-19 in town & 22-25+ highway. Comfy interior, good layout. Plenty of power with V8, lots of room (7 passengers) but still feels sporty to drive. Great stereo (have the 6-disc w/ MP3 upgrade)! Overall, love this Explorer!

Best Features

Comfy leather seats, ease of folding 2nd row/access to 3rd row seats, moonroof, lots of passing power, adj gas pedal.

Worst Features

Better sensors system!
