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

Review

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.

Best Features

AdvanceTrac, fuel mileage

Worst Features

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