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


I've had this truck for ten months and 9,500 miles. We upgraded from an '02 Escape XLT. Gas mileage is poorer, but we knew that going in. I love the way it drives, handles, and accelerates. I like the way the interior looks. Plenty of room for the family camping trips. Hubby doesn't like the interior door handles, but they're just fine with me. I bought the dark stone color. It's not actually one color though, sometimes it's brown, sometimes it's gray. In my driveway it can even look a bit green. I do a lot of stop and go driving and get about 15 mpg.

Best Features

The exterior look. Driver comfort. Handling.

Worst Features

After about 3 months of driving, the rear driver side window no longer works. Removable rear head rests for increased visibilty. Larger side mirrors to reduce the many blind spots. Replace the "styled steel wheels" with something a bit more attractive.
