Worth the wait!
By Amanda on


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


After 10 weeks, I finally took delivery of my 2008 Eddie V8. It was worth the wait! I can't say enough good about the amazing handling, ride, and power. Going from a F150 back to an SUV I was worried about not having enough space or horsepower. Delete the 3rd row seat if you don't need it, there is nice storage in the floor. I did have to do some setup to unprogram the auto moving exit seat and some timers, but the digital read out made it very easy. SYNC is (so far) flawless with iPod and cell phone. Test drive a V8 if you get the chance, much better than the V6. The shifter gets in the way of climate controls (dual zone digital)

Best Features

Microsoft Sync is amazing. Seat/pedal adjust will fit any driver. V8 is worth the extra money. Handles well, rides like a luxury car.

Worst Features

Auto down/auto up feature for the windows. Powerlift gate. Smaller rear headrests (obstruct the mirror). Shifter can be in the way of climate control. Obviously better gas mileage would be nice!
