Regretting leasing the 2013 XLT V6 All-Wheel-Drive
By missfc on

Vehicle

2013 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

38 yr old female owner of the 2013 XLT 4WD-V6 since 04/05/13. Very disappointed with the purchase. Ride quality is very harsh over potholes, you feel and hear all potholes. Road noise is loud on old and rough stretches of NJ roads. Poor sound insulation. Headlights are not bright enough. No remote start or push-button start on the XLT costing $39,040. 2nd row seats are small, do not provide enough comfort, thigh support to adults. 3rd row very hard and heavy to fold and unfold. Jerky transmission going uphill. Fit and finish is very poor -- door molding, seals, compared to my 2010 VW. Steering buttons are very cheap quality. Gas tank door does not lock.

Best Features

Sync, Digital gauges, Back-up Camera, 4WD, Height and dimensions of the vehicle, number code lock, Power Liftgate. Gas mileage is not too bad, averaging at about 20.5 mostly highway driving at speed limit.

Worst Features

Improve all of the above.
