2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Great family vehicle. We enjoy all the extras especially the DVD player in the back. Back up sensors are great in the city. Very nice looking vehicle and extremely quiet inside. Very comfortable on long trips. The V- 6 could use more horsepower. Sometimes tranny has hard time deciding what gear to stay in on hills. Overall it's a very nice vehicle. Glad I have extended warranty after reading some of these reviews...
Heated seats, back up sensors, 3 rows of ceiling vents, dvd, rear buckets, 3rd row, exterior design(especially the front), color combo(white/gold trim) plenty of cup holders, very quiet!
Engine could more hp, shifts in to reverse very hard sometimes, i get the slight hesitation you read about in these reviews(who knows, drive until it breaks)
Beware of your Warranty Co., as Ours DENIED our claim and ford wants $5,100 FOR New engine.... NOt including the radiator which probably caused the engine to seize without warning whatsoever WHICH leads me to believe there are also faulty sensors involved.
