Thrilled to own second Explorer
By wrwisconsinsnowbird on


2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


This is my second Explorer, I still own a '97 XLT with 100k on it with minimal major problems/repairs. The '07 does have an annoying rough idle clicking that it's done since new. The '08 has the 292hp v8 which idles smoothly and has plenty of power when needed. The interior and exterior is flawless and amazingly quiet. Everyhing worked perfectly when we picked it up and ever since. Better gas mileage would help but I need the truck frame for towing and the v8 for power.

Best Features

Adjustable pedals, seat memory, V8, quietness, storage, comfortable seats.

Worst Features

Visability an issue unless you push down the 2nd row head rests, very slight hesitation in tranny when making a quick stop then accelerating.
