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


I have had this vehicle going on almost 3 years and love it! First, the negatives. The first year I owned it I had the 4WD motor and shifter replaced. During the second year, I experienced the common "clunk" when starting from rest or moving slowly then pressing on the gas. Initially, dealer replaced faulty transmission part and re-flashed computer. Computer had to be re-flashed again recently to totally fix the problem. All covered under warranty. Now the positives. The cabin is ultra quiet when driving highway speeds of 65 mph or more. Lots of cargo space, decent performance, and very comfortable seats on long trips. Best mid-sized SUV out there IMO!

Best Features

Stereo (love the feature that automatically reduces volume when speed is reduced), dual climate control, rear backup sensor, comfort, quiet cabin.

Worst Features

Nav. system isn't the easiest to learn. Could use a few more storage compartments up front.
