Used 2008 Ford Explorer SUV Consumer Reviews
This car is amazing!!! I drive it for work all around the city and it gets 18.9 mpgs overall!!! This car has great power and pick up. I like to brag that I always beat those Bmw suvs out of the traffic lights! Its got a very nice interior 9 cup holders but don't use them i pack people it in all the time and love to take it off road!!! no problems and a sunny future together!
I had my Ex for about 3 months now. It's great SUV because it has everything I need. The V6 is just enough for me, I mainly do city driving. I like the leather quality on the seats. It is very quiet and I love the comfort on the 2nd row.
This is my fourth Explorer and they just keep getting better! The features, versatility and the price can't be beat. The V-6 fuel ecomomy isn't great but, I get the same MPG that I got with my Acura MDX and I don't have to run premium fuel. The Sirius radio and Sync system are great. Towing two SEA- Doo's GTX's takes a little effort, but the vehicles handles and stops well. The third row seats are great for kids under twelve and I love the power up and down feature. The second row seats recline but they do take a little effort to move up and out so people can get into the third row.
I drove the 4 runner and Pilot and they are nice but I'm very glad that I relooked at Ford they really steped up and I like the ride and feel of the Ford best, it's fun to drive!
This is my third Explorer since 1994. The dealer tacked on a lot of extra "dealer fees" that were not advertised but this Explorer was so clean with very low mileage, handled like a dream, and with a suspension that made the drive so comfortable, I bought it in spite of the fact that they were charging me too much over the advertised price. Plus, the Carfax was immaculate! I sold my 2016 Rav 4 Toyota elsewhere, because after 2 extreme spinal reconstructions, I just couldn't take the road vibrations any longer so once I drove this 2008 Explorer, I grabbed it and put the additional money I received from the Toyota in the bank, just in case I should need a repair in the future. I love this Explorer. I drive everywhere, but now I no longer get those extreme backaches.
