99 Durango was Better
By Tony on


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


I purchased basic XLS V6 model. Vehicle looks nice. It has been in the shop 3 times since March 06 purchase. Lumbar support driver seat broke twice, still not fixed right; rear driver side window inoperable, transmission will not shift out of park more than half of the time when brake pedal is depressed. Fuel economy no better than my former Durango V8 5.9 liter. Gas pedal is too small and foot slips off. I am stuck in this thing for several years; can not afford loss of value to sell now.

Best Features

Exterior design.

Worst Features

Quality. Larger gas pedal, better transmission, stronger driver seat lumbar support, better mileage for a V6. Longer factory warranty 5 year 100,000 miles like 2007 GM.
