2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Just purchased an Eddie Bauer edition Explorer. After reading all the research and reviews, decided this was the best vehicle for our needs. Build quality is excellent. Nav radio is the way to go. Very simple to use and program. Our eight year old was able to operate the rear DVD with a short lesson from the salesman. She thinks it "rocks" I do not see the big deal about placement of the door handles. We got used to them right away. Power with the V8 is great. The mileage is about 16 which is not bad for a engine which is not broken in yet. We are also very impressed with all the safety features. With the current rebates, we received a great deal.
Nav radio, rear DVD, safety systems. The dark cherry, gold trim is very sharp looking. The leather seats are great.
None right now. No vehicle is perfect, but we have had a good track record with Ford products. Wife has a Escape which is serving her very well.
