Japanese SUV's are a better buy

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


Very underpowered with the V6 engine. Can barely keep up with traffic and must drive in the right lane w/ a/c on as it kills the engine power. Interior quality is poor. All four of my door arm rests are chipping and peeling and the dealer claims this is normal. I'm going to do take Ford up on their advice and swap my ride for a Toyota 4Runner. I've already test driven it twice and there is no comparison. This family will never again buy Ford.

Best Features

Smooth ride.

Worst Features

More storage room in the front center console. Ford could learn from Toyota and the Jeep GC. Get with today's technology and put the key and fob together!
