2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Overall, a very good SUV. Great power/performance, very good towing capacity/capability, lots of interior room, 3rd row seating that actually can fit 2 smaller adults, nice styling. 4WD cuts in flawlessly when needed. Seats are comfortable but not as much as others I've driven. Bad blind spot in the passenger rear corner but can be compensated for by adjusting the side view mirror. Transmission sometimes has harsh engagement before it warms up when accelerating from a stop. Brakes get some getting used to since it takes more pressure than most vehicles I've driven over the past 40 years.
Towing capacity/capability, 4WD and dual zone climate control.
Fix the passenger side rear corner blind spot. Improve the brakes.
