Love That New Eddie Bauer
By Robert on

Vehicle

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)

Review

The ride & handling are significantly improved from my 2003 Eddie Bauer. The ride is smoother & more quiet than the 2003. The vehicle feels glued to the road like a sports car. The interior (suede seat inserts) looks nicer & feels more comfortable. Seats feel more like a previously owned Volvo. The floor mounted shifter provides a much sportier look & feel than the previous column mount. Power is not overwhelming (doesn't feel like my 2005 Mustang GT with the same basic engine), but it is smooth. A great highway cruiser with 20mpg on the open road. SUV buyers should take a good look at this great truck.

Favorite Features

Seating comfort. Smooth ride. New front end appearance. Floor mounted shifter. Fold flat 2nd row & power fold flat 3rd row seats. Overall size & packaging.

Suggested Improvements

A sun shield for the navigation screen. It is often hard to see in daylight. Additional storage on the console or dashboard for change, toll tickets, etc Keep working on improving gas mileage.
