Solid Ride and Lots of Comforts
By NewRider on

Vehicle

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

Review

Quiet, comfortable, powerful, and solid. Surprised at the great handling on curves, and the tight turning radius. Competes well with our Acura MDX! Engine runs smooth and quiet. Can barely feel the tranny shift, even when kicking in the on-the- fly full-time 4-wheel drive system. Comfortable steering wheel with redundant audio, HVAC, and speed controls keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road!

Favorite Features

Sound and family entertainment systems allow one row to watch DVD and another row to listen to CD or radio, endless power seat positions, comfy second row buckets, good cargo space when seats folded down flat, rear window able to open seperate from hatch, reverse sensing system is a must in an SUV!

Suggested Improvements

The door pull handles are in a really awkward place. A cut-out in the door arm rests might be a better idea ergonomically. Front 12v outlet would be better positioned on dash so that coiled cords don't have to stretch across the floor shift console. A third cargo area 12v outlet would be nice...
