2012 Ford Explorer XLT: Not All the Controls are Bad

January 12, 2012

We've covered various user interface issues with the Explorer. Needless to say, there's much to discuss.

With that in mind, I figured I would call out one instance where the Explorer designers got it right. Yes, I'm talking about the door lock button and its correct positioning near the door handle. It's the most basic thing, yet so many manufacturers screw it up. They stick the buttons on the dashboard, the center console and plenty of other places you wouldn't think to look.

This setup? Perfect, don't change a thing.
