Overall I enjoy my Explorer, however the leather on my seats is cracking and worn. The interior looks a lot older than a 2005 suv. It looks more like 1994. This is a problem for me because of my line of work and the clients I drive around from time to time. My exterior is always nice and clean. The cracking leather seat take away from my style.
I like the interior height and the room. I also enjoy the third row seat.
Upgrade the leather seats. It will complete the sleek look. I plan to trade this suv in because of the cheap leather seats. I am looking at other SUV's. Fix my seats and I may consider staying with My Explorer. Need to get better gas mileage.
