Purchased the vehicle in 11/09. Had less than 30k miles when purchased. Test drove vehicle and it looked and drove fine. Did have left rear strut replaced in 1/10, but was cvrd by factory warranty. Vehicle is Eddie Bauer edition, so is loaded w/features. Ride is smooth and I like the styling. Previous vehicle was a Toyota 4-Runner. Glad to be able to purchase a good quality american car that provides great value.

Great for Trailering a Boat

by from Saline MI on March 31, 2010

Does everything I expect of it. Gets better mileage than expected for a V8... can get 22+ mpg on the road at 70+ mph. Have had 5 Explorers. They just keep getting better.

Pros Extremely quiet ride and comfortable. Powerful V8 engine, awesome stereo equipments (audiophile), powerfold 3rd row seat. Cons Seat pockets behind the first row are not leather. Ugly Antenna. Over all, it is a great truck. The award winning V8 with 3V has been named one of the top 10 engine in the world for 3 years in a row. User friendly fully integrated Nav and stereo equipments further enhance driving experiences. Beautiful 2 tone leather seating and instrument Panels with power folded 3 row seating make driving experiences more fun than other trucks on the same class. Responsive ventilated disk brakes and loaded safety features are unparallel. The drawbacks are cosmetic, antenna, door handles for the 2nd row, and limited cheap plastic materials.

i purchase an explorer as I have an older Explorer with 192,000miles. I tow boats and utility trailer and the Explorer has been an excellent choice. The newer version has more power and comfort. Ford changed to a non-frame unibody type SUV and I determined that that style of vehicle is not as suitable for towing.

My wife and I bought this vehicle as a CPO in 2009 when our '03 Trailblazer blew up on us. Having had this vehicle for 3 years I would have to say it has been a really good, solid performer. I only wishe we had been more patient and found one that had more of the luxury features. Ours does have leather but not power seats and the front seats not heated either. We have grandkids so my wife wanted this one for the rear DVD entertainment, they used it twice.. Overall great truck, great in snow and even on the beach at OBX, mpg was biggest down fall, only averaged 17 mpg

This is my seconded Explorer, I have a 1998 Explorer xlt loaded with a v-8 great vehicle, has over 200 thousand mile. Bought another Explorer Eddie Bauer 4x4 v-8, wonderful vehicle has everything has more room and a lot of play toys. Keeping both just because my 98' is still in great shape, runs great and has never had any problems.

Got the 07 Explorer with ~70K on it still certified. Starts and runs great, room for all 6 of us and the dog with 3rd row seat. Not a lot of room for extras though but that's what the luggage rack is for. Rides high and quiet at all speeds and 4wd for confidence and safety in winter and off the beaten path. Tow package for the boat and nearly 20mpg on hwy. Rides a little rough on the bumps but it's durable and practicle for the price.

It took me a while to give up my BMW 325i for a large (at least to me) SUV, but after several weekend trips, I'm glad I made the switch. Of course going from being single (when I got the BMW) to have a significant other, her daughter, and two dogs may have something to do with my point of view. I knew going in that fuel economy must suffer, but I've only given up about 5 miles/gallon which I find amazing when you consider the car is about 1200 pounds heavier. I'm a believer in rear-while drive, fully-independent suspension vehicles so I didn't give up anything there going from the BMW sports sedan to a mid-size SUV. What amazed me more than anything was how quiet the new Ford Explorer is. It is an equal in quietness to the BMW 525i (which I had before the 325i) and better than the 325i. While it took me a long time to convert to SUV land (I'm always late on trends), I'm glad I waited until Ford got the Explorer right.

Great vehicle

by from Alexandria, LA on June 4, 2012

Love my Ford Explorer. Have he 3rd row seats which fold down for storage. Love the fact that the second row of seats recline back.
