2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


Get the V-8. I get 20 mpg on a trip at 65. Nice looking truck but poor Ford quality - I've had it 4 mos with 2 major breakdowns. No problems with the transmission. The dealer was great and I'm glad I got the extended warranty. The 18' chrome rims look great. I've previously had Pilots - not as nice looking but far more reliable. I am impressed with the ride and how quiet it is at highway speeds.

Best Features

V-8. Plenty of performance with reasonable gas mileage. 18' Chrome rims. Style. Safety features. Reclining rear seats. Third seat option is very spacious. Very comfortable interior. High depreciation made a great used car buy!

Worst Features

Better mechanical quality. Blind spots with rear headrests (especially third row). Redesign rear cupholders currently on center console - I'm always bumping my daughters drinks on the floor. Sliding rear seat.
