My first SUV and I love it.
By Ford Dude on


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


I am Ford loyal. This Explorer is my 6th Ford vehicle. I love everything about this new Explorer however I do feel there are some improvements that need to be made. 1st the headrests in the middle seat aren't so bad but the 3rd row when the seats are up need to be down to see out the back. 2nd the door pulls are too low. I do like how heavy the doors are makes it feel more sturdy. We love the reverse sensing system. The gas mileage could be improved. I traded a 05 Ford Ranger that I was able to get 30+ mpg on highway. I'm getting 22 average on the highway, big difference. My wife was sold when she found out that the Explorer came standard with side impact airbags and a 5 star crash test rating.

Best Features

The floor shifter, the leather, 7 passenger seating, standard side impact airbags, Sirius satellite radio 6 months free, 5 star crash test rating. the chrome inside and out, the E.B. grill is different from all other Explorers.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, 3rd row headrests, door pulls.
