2005 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is a vehicle supplied to me from
my employer. It is a lot of fun to
drive and also very comfortable. Both
interior and exterior appointment blend

My only complaint is the dealership.
The running board is a third party one
and no by Ford. It is narrow and has
actually been put on backwards by the
dealership. They say they will fix it,
but that was two weeks ago... and
nothing. The second complaint is that
the car was supposed to come with
factory mats and they weren't. Again,
Framingham Ford promised to get me
factory mats ASAP. It's been over a
month and still no mats, despite follow
up phone calls. This is my second
experience with "don't care" Ford

Best Features

Interior Comfort

Worst Features

Better mileage per gallon. I am only getting about 16.5 MPG. Most of my driving is highway. Hopefully this will improve as the engine gets broken in... but then again maybe not.
