On the road with my Explorer
By papadlh on
2005 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased my '05 Explorer used with 32,000 miles. Today I have 93,000 and have had only a couple minor problems. A CD was stuck once but after a restart it came right out. The AC/heat blows in on my leg and should be moved to a different location. The fuel mileage is almost 20 MPG with about 800 LBS of gear and an overhead rack. It is a Flex-fuel vehicle but does not perform as well on E-10. The AdvanceTrac is instantly responsive and would buy another just for this feature alone.

More console storage, improved mileage with ethanol, relocate vents, heated rear view mirrors.
