I purchased my Explorer used from CarMax over 2 years ago.
The clear coat is peeling around the front head lights.
The parking brake handle (plastic) broke and the cost to fix is $400.00.
Lucky for me, I have an extended warranty from CarMax.
The driver's leather seat is cracking.
The passenger seat has ripped on the seam.
The rear seat holders are split on both ends.
Due to ethanol in gas, miles per gallon are poor.
My 2006 Explorer is very comfortable to ride in.
I'm sure improvements have been made to Explorers by now.
