25 mpg???
By kristen7 on


2012 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


We traded in a large SUV (Navigator) in hopes of retaining some of the space we are used to while getting better gas mileage. We have owned the car 3 months and have gotten no better than 20 miles per gallon on the interstate. NEVER have we gotten near the advertised mpg. The gadgets are "cool" in the interior however, my phone is continually bumped from the system (sometimes during calls) and at times the whole console goes dark. We have always been Ford owners but this car has been a bit of a disappointment. Looks good but I miss my Navigator.

I have been averaging 16.3 mpg - my Toyota Highlander (6 cylinder) got at least 24 mpg....I thought the newer vehicles were supposed to be more efficient!
