Not the best midsized SUV but not the worst

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


I have owned my Ford for just under a year now and have had some problems I would like to warn people interested in buying the car. First at 3200 miles I had to have the trans reprogramed not to big of a deal but the trans should not be slipping at all especially at 3000 miles. Second the passenger door was making the squeeks the the domestics are know again. I emphasize at less than 5000 miles. Build quality is up to snuff with the imports. It a far better car than the one it replaced. The other enormous draw back is the resale. I own a 2006 and payed about 24000 and is now woth about eleven.

Best Features

The amount of car for the money

Worst Features

Buy the v8. The 6speed transmission thats comes with it is much smoother
