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