Mullinax Ford of Mobile review
Communication was very persistent!
July 12, 2020
By Beth Overstreet from Citronelle Al
They made sure they kept in touch with me on the vehicles I was interested in buying, I received emails and text messages along with phone calls. They never did pressure me on anything and they never was rude about my credit not being good enough to get approved for financing. They was very nice through out the process! Even though I did not get approved for financing on the vehicles I was interested in and I'm still looking to purchase a vehicle (due to my credit) they still did great to me!
2020 Ford Explorer Platinum review
My Explorer is perfect for my family.

I reluctantly traded in my 2013 Taurus for a Ford Edge in 2017. I considered this a downgrade in comfort and luxury. I had decided not to go with the Explorer at that time because of the lower fuel economy. When the 2020 Explorer XLT came out, it had a highway rating of 28 MPG which was the same rating I was getting from the Ford Edge.
My Ford Taurus always surprised me with its excellent fuel economy. I could get 32 MPG easily on long drives. The Edge would give me 26 MPG on the highway and about 18 MPG around town.
The 2020 Explorer is so much more comfortable than the Edge. The kids love sitting in their own chairs. They have plenty of space and when they start getting on each other's nerves or my wife's, they can easily split up with one of them sitting in the last row.
I have managed better than 30 MPG on long trips with the Explorer. My average driving comes in at 25 MPG.
I have had no mechanical problems with the Explorer what-so-ever. I now have 20,000 miles on it. I got the towing package which has really turned out to be useful. I use it to carry bikes with a hitch carrier. I have rented a U-Haul traller on several occasions instead of renting a pick-up truck. It is only $20 per day to rent a tailor.
I really enjoy the Android Auto feature. The major complaint that I read on the Ford Explorer is that they claim that the shifting is not smooth or that the car is noisy.
I find that the car rides very nicely and is very quiet when you are on the road. The 10-speed transmission is obviously going to be doing lots of shifting to get you up to speed. That is a lot of gears. Those gears are the reason i am getting over 30 MPG on a large 7 passenger SUV. I don't mind a bit of busy shifting in order to save fuel.
I know that the KIA Telluride is very highly regarded in this category. The Telluride advertises 21 MPG overall. I am very happy to get the mileage I am getting now. I also got a pretty good discount from Ford when I bought the Explorer.
I believe that the Ford Explorer is an ideal vehicle for families. Fuel Economy is unbelievable for a vehicle this size with so much power.
I always put Explore in the Economy mode when I drive. I can feel the power drop when I put it in this mode.
In the normal mode, I get about 26 MPG on the highway but in the Economy mode, I get 30 and better.
