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


Love the looks of my truck. Love the way it performs out on the highway. Not happy with the way the leather looks dirty and I have to keep cleaning. Hate the way it takes off when the engine is cold. Hate the way it shifts gears. Hate the way it drives slow in the parking lot. Hate the way it takes off after downshifting. If the transmission worked correctly, and the leather upholstery would stay looking new, I would have no complaints.

Best Features

Exterior design.

Worst Features

Transmission should operate correctly. Leather upholstery needs improvement.
