2007 Ford Explorer SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Bought used in December 2008. First car payment and not impressed yet. Tranny had to be worked already. Supposely had the certified check over and they forgot to reset oil light and do the recall tranny then. Hope this is not the beginning of seeing the dealer every month. Gas mileage is terrible reads only 12.3 avg. But I love the look and the interior especially the leather seats and dual climate control. Have not haul anything yet. I so far enjoy it though


Best Features

Heated seats and the front grille. Dual climate control


Worst Features

Gas mileage and like the 3/4 rear hatch on the older models. Easier access to the third row from the middle

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


Review

This is our first SUV after a series of three mini-vans. The Explorer is very well built with no rattles or squeaks. Since it is built on a truck frame, the ride can be a little rough on certain terrain. I really wanted a Tahoe, but the Eddie Bauer Explorer comparably equipped was 10K less. It is a little smaller vehicle, but for 10K it was worth the difference.


Best Features

This vehicle is full of safety features. I like the styling and the quality of the build. The power third row seats and power step-rails are nice.


Worst Features

The gas mileage is poor, but I knew that when I bought it. I wish the second row seats reclined further.

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


Best 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


Worst Features

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


Review

This is the best Ford I have evere owned. My family are Ford truck buyers. This truck is excellent in design and performance. The interior is high quality leather and very quite. Having the fold flat third row seats is something that is essential when hauling kids or large items. The fuel economy isn't that bad considering that there is a 300 hp V8 in it. I get an avg of 19 mpg. This is a great buy for truck lovers or families.


Best Features

V8 power, leather seats, wood grain trim, quiet, third row fold flat seats.


Worst Features

None.

So, I do love my Explorer. Though there are some problems like others have said. The head rest that get in the way, engine takes forever to get up there. I do love the limited. I love the automatic side steps, DVD, navigation, great stereo system.

Cup holders galore! Roomy


Worst Features

Gas mileage.
