2006 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Bought this 2006 Limited V-8 with 32,000 miles to replace a 1996 Isuzu Trooper. The Explorer has great styling both inside and out, three rows of seats with power folding third row. Plenty of interior room, with lots of leg room in the second row. Good visibility, with a straight hood, so you can see the front corners of the vehicle. The ride is very smooth with the independent rear suspension, and interior quiet at highway speeds. I did purchase a extended warranty for three years/thirty-six thousand miles. Recently had a run through the snow with slippery road conditions. The automatic 4WD worked great, but also tried the "manual" 4WD option. No problems either. Overall, great!

Best Features

Smooth ride, lots of power from the V-8 engine. The six speed transmission is smooth and quiet. Love the heated front seats and also having ceiling vents for rear air conditioning and also rear heater. Like the steering wheel controls for temperature, radio etc. Overall quite pleased.

Worst Features

As others have stated, the interior door handles are a little awkward, but like most things, once you get used to them, it is OK.
