2012 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I bought the 2012 Explorer XLT-EcoBoost. Beautiful SUV!! I've had issues with the transmission from the word go. They fixed it I thnk-changed the Valve Body. It shifted hard when the weather starting getting cold. Still has a little hard shifting. The right side of the windshied is very noisy-worse when it's very windy outside. When it raining out, you can hear every raindrop on the top!! But the vehicle is topnotch luxury!! I love that part of it. I feel very safe in it. Has all the bells and whistles I want in a car. Come on Ford-lets get it all figured out and all in sync!!

Best Features

The style, and the luxury of the vehicle inside and out. It's beautiful!!

Worst Features

The noise in the windshield-and the rooftop.

how does the EcoBoost perform for you? I just got one myself and it's not quite up to what I expected. I had driven a v6 previously as a rental, I had it for a week and it maintained about 20MPG, I expected the ecoboost to do better but I'm finding I struggle to stay above 18MPG.
