2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought my Explorer with 18K miles on it. It is 4x4, Eddie Bauer edition and the v-6. I was sold on it the minute I sat in it. Great interior, very comfortable and well laid out. I'm not crazy about the speedometer and tach layout. They sometimes seem to be in a hole, but a minor issue. It rides and drives great and will get 21 mpg or so on the highway. City is about 16. Great factory stereo, great A/C, rides like a Lincoln.

Best Features

Keyless entry on the driver side door is very handy; rear a/c vents; 4-wheel discs, antilock; anti-skid, leather interior, great color combination; Lights under the mirrors on the doors; heavy thunk when shutting the doors means it is built well.

Worst Features

Very few because it is overall a great vehicle; however, I would redesign the interior arm rests and the layout of the gauges. The center stack with the stereo and A/C controls is nice as is.
