06 Explorer a dissapointment
By Jock W on


2006 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Ford missed the mark on their redesign. The Explorer acts like the V6 is unable to get it moving without putting the peddle to the floor and it still only get @ 13 mpg. The new second row seating will not let MOST child booster seats be installed correctly. I only found three and none of them were seats I would have chosen. There is no room in the drivers area to put anything. The put a little area for cell phone or whatever all the way on the on top of the dash but it is too small and too hard to use. I would not buy it again!

Best Features

The power third row seats Heated seats

Worst Features

Second row seats need to better designed to fit childrens booster seats Front seats need somewhere to put things ie: change cell phone ect. Engine: It shouldn't take a V8 to get it moving. BETTER GAS MILEAGE
