2008 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Drivers over 6' 3" should consider another vehicle. The power seats tilt back when they go down so you sit leaning back which is very uncomfortable. With the moon roof you loose about 1.5" of headroom so tall people will have their head rubbing the roof. I thought I could live with this but the car must go!

Best Features

Car look great drives great. My last one ran to 195K and still looked good.

Worst Features

Redesign the seat so when it goes lower it does not tilt back.
