Just got my Explorer XLT(almost loaded) 3 days ago. Anyone who posts anything negative about this vehicle must not own one yet. It has features in it you cant touch in luxury trucks for under 50k. Trust me, my other half has a BMW and we do not even want to drive that anymore. So far the only issue i do have is with the phone/SYNC. It keeps pulling up my text msgs as new and beeps for them as they are new msgs. Other then that everything else is crazy in it. Safety features galore and it feels like it is a 50k plus truck.
Interior is awesome, exterior design-awesome. Safety features-galore, gadgets-galore, comfort-awesome, ride-smooth as a gravy sandwich, handling-awesome so far.
Phone/sync, gas mileage so far is not as advertised.
