Luxury, performance and value

This is the 2nd Explorer I've had. I drove a 2009 XLT that was purchased new as a company car and I was impressed with the way it drove. I left the company and had to give the car back, which was a bummer. I just recently purchased a gently used 2007 Eddie Bauer with about 42k miles. The SUV is impressive - it looks and drive brand new. I have had people comment that they actually thought it was a new vehicle. I drive alot for work and my new EB has performed above my expectations. Oh, and should I mention all the comfort toys this SUV comes equipted with!

Luxury and Value in a beautiful package!

We just purchased our 07 Eddie Bauer Edition and love it! It handles like a dream with the RSC, is extremely comfortable, has all of the amenities you could ask for, and has the 4.6L V8 engine that was rated one of the top ten engines for 07. We are averaging 18.5 miles per gallon on mixed back country roads and highway driving. The third row seating is actually usable for adults and when the seats are folded down, you have all kinds of room to store and carry items with you. We've had many people ask us about the vehicle and told us how sharp it looks. The automatic climate control is quiet and quickly effective, the stereo system has great range, and the six speed automatic shifts flawlessly. With the V8 power, we are looking forward to pulling our camper to our favorite camping spots. We've owned a 2001 F250Lariat since we bought it new and have had great success with it. We have put 94,000 miles on it and are looking to keep it going for many more years. We're looking forward to the same with our "new" used Explorer.

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.

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.

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.

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

Great vehicle

SUV for the average family

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.
