A great SUV, best of the three Explorers I've owned. The one flaw I've found in the short time that I've owned it is the placement of the fuel gauge. It's pretty well hidden in the lower left side of the instrumentation group. Pretty difficult to see in the lower recesses of the tach.
All in all, I'm pleased with the '06, some quality improvements over the '03 that I'd owned previously.
Put the fuel gauge where it can be seen. Only change I'd recommend right now.
