Love it so far. Haven't had any problems. I think the quality is great and ease of use for the features is my favorite thing about it.

Fold flat rear seats. Unlike chevy SUV the back can turn into a completely flat surface in about five seconds.


Suggested Improvements

2007 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love my Explorers, this is 4th one to lease and least expensive, RWD V6 in high $20's others were EB 4X4V-8's near$40G. Never any trouble with any of them, very safe, do almost anything when safely handled. Lowered ground clearance such a plus in ride experience. Get higher mileage lease, you will want to drive it everywhere. Great stereo, Great Visibility, V6 is sluggish when punched, V8's were great and mileage diff miniscule between the two. Power to pull most anything, didn't even need 4x4 on last one in NE OH winter, RWD just fine too. XLT int fabric is boring. Get the leather & heated seats, fantastic. Recommend for anyone with good taste and who expects more from their vehicles


Favorite Features

Very safe feel, command of road conditions, sharp frt end looks, classy SUV, nice 18" tires & alum rims on relatively less expensive model, good mileage 19-25, great stereo- Sirius ready, mp3 plug


Suggested Improvements

Switch gas fill to right side of vehicle -opposite of most cars & trucks. Only had single cd player, this model very noisy compared to EB models, seems no interior insulation, hear undercarriage road noise during rain, storms, up-slash very evident.

2007 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We just are getting to the one year anniversary of our Explorer. We love it! Plenty of room for our kids and their soccer, baseball, volleyball stuff, etc. We just finished a trip to Houston, about 350 miles round trip and got our best mpg yet, a little over 22 hwy! That was with mid-grade fuel and running 75 mph for the most part with some Houston traffic built in. Here's hoping the 2nd yr report is as positive!


Favorite Features

3rd row seat, stereo


Suggested Improvements

Shifter mechanism (have heard 2008 is better),

Review

Just bought mine this month and it's a nice car, but there could be some improvement. Like the floor mounted shifter gets in the way when I'm driving and trying to change the A/C setting or when I'm trying to look for on coming traffic and the oversized rear headrest get in the way; both 2nd and 3rd row. And there seem to be a little bit of lag in the 6 cylinder engine in range acceleration. Other than that everything else is good and since I keep the 3rd seat folded down I can at least see out of the rear window. Rear quarter windows are a different story.


Favorite Features

Mp3 jack, even though I haven't used it, the appearance package, the puddle lights, keypad (can't lock myself out anymore), SAT radio, power driver's seat.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the head rest and the shifter.
