Nice Truck So Far

2006 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

This is my first American SUV purchase, and so far so good. I like the looks both interior and exterior, but Ford, what were you thinking about for the door handles and pulls? I've nick-named them doork handles. Great cargo space, 3rd row seat is nice. Very quiet, smooth and responsive ride. This truck gives the driver good feedback from the road - something I only got from Japanese SUV's in the past. Wife owned a '94 sport when we got married and I couldn't dump that one fast enough, but it looks like the '06 is a winner with the ride and safety improvements.

Best Features

Quiet ride, safety enhancements, power.

Worst Features

Lose the doork handles Ford - did any design engineers actually open the door and get inside?
