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


There are a lot of reviews bashing some really minor points about this car. But, face it, this is just looking for reasons to complain. For $22K or less you get a solid, safe well built, good looking car. I use mine for towing a bass boat and it is like the boat is not even there. This car puts all other SUV's to shame in terms of value for money. Ok, it does not have a chrome plated steering wheel. Who cares. Go pay an extra $15k and you can have one along with the high priced maintenance. You can't go wrong. I love my Explorer.

Best Features

Good ride, great towing vehicle, very comfortable, easy to use controls, looks great with the black trim and running boards.

Worst Features

Needs a slightly better stock stereo.
