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
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
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.
