Vehicle2005 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewI drive two vehicles, my C5 Corvette
and an SUV. I had a 2000 Jeep Grand
Cherokee, but I never really warmed up
to it. It leaned a LOT in curves and
gave poor gas mileage. Front leg room
was inadequate. The interior was very
nice and the highway ride was fine.
My 2005 Explorer rides much better, is
quicker (though relative when
referring to SUVs), and handles far
better than my Jeep. It is quiet,
smooth riding and has a super
stability system. It has more cargo
room than the Jeep. Gas mileage is
very good for an SUV. I have averaged
21.6 in mixed driving. The Jeep I6
gave me 16 -17 mpg. The five speed
automatic is smooth and seems to
anticipate my next move. I like my
Best Featuresstability system, independent rear suspension, good handling,strong V6, good driving position, decent mpg, quiet ride.
Worst Features6 cd player, better padding in seats, lighted ignition switch.
