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


I loved my Ford Windstar and didn't think I would want to drive a "big" SUV, but a move to wintry climate area changed my mind. I love the way it handles, the very smooth ride and the strong engine. The interior is roomy, comfortable and very quiet. The fold down rear seats are very easy to manipulate and it provides lots of cargo room in the five passenger mode. For a five member family it was a great choice.

Best Features

Quiet and comfortable ride, easy fold down rear seats.

Worst Features

The placement of the front door handles is awkward; after four months my husband and I are still not used to them. I do not like the bright lights lever on the turn signal. I have more than once unintentionally flashed the brights at oncoming traffic when I meant only to put on the turn signal.
