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


I now understand why there are so many Explorers on the road -it is simply amazing. For a vehicle that is physically 4 years old (the build date is 2005), it still drives and handles like it just came from the factory. It drives like a big marshmallow - you rarely feel anything on the road, and I have yet to have an issue with it. Mileage wise I average 18.8- 19.1 MPG weekly. It's just a great truck, and after driving a money pit Mazda Tribute for years, its a welcome relief.

Best Features

Handling, 3rd row seating, rear heat/ac, quiet ride, the leather seating & power seat, console shifter, 6cd Audiophile unit

Worst Features

Audiophile system lacks a little on the midrange, mp3 jack (Ford made standard for 07+), paint the bumpers!! I'd really like a space in the center console under the heater controls to put things
