Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.5 reviews) it is fully loaded, with cooling & warming seat, heated steering wheel, navigation, changing lane warning, etc. I love it! I have had the vehicle for six months and it doesn't states that oil change isn't needed yet. It is only 1/2 way toward oil changing. Love that it tells me when oil changing is needed. it is a 4 with Ecoburst. Wasn't sure if I would like 4 because I never had a 4. Last was a V-8 with power. So when I bought this explorer limited edition, I took it climbing in the mountains. It has climbing assist and it has the power. I was amazed. I wanted the pedals to adjust, which Explorer Limited Edition has. It has memory so different drivers push button and it remember the driver.

Nice suv a couple problems

When I bought this truck the first week I found out I had 2 issues that needed to be fix and last month in February I was told there is another 2 problems that I need to fix but I cannot afford to do so. I didn't think I would have so many problems with this vehicle especially since I've only had it about 5 months now.

Pros

  • Interior Space:
  • Styling:
  • Seat Comfort:

Cons

  • Cabin Noise:
  • Cost to Maintain:
  • Braking:

- H Stewart, 2016 Ford Explorer

Has anything and everything you can possibly imagine.

The technology is UNREAL, the wipers go on when it starts raining, the bright lights go off on their own when a car is coming toward me, the air conditioned seats, the heated steering wheel, the volume goes down on the radio when I'm in reverse and something is behind me and the sounds goes off all together when the phone rings, the cup holders light up and so does the floor where my feet are and you can change the color too when you want, I could go on and on. I hope it lasts FOREVER!!

Pros

  • Weather Versatility: The 4 wheel drive for winter
  • Technology and Entertainment: I didn't even know some of these things existed.
  • Styling: It is totally a step above all the other SUV's I saw

- Colleen Merletti, 2013 Ford Explorer

Excellent car at terrific price with low miles

it is fully loaded, with cooling & warming seat, heated steering wheel, navigation, changing lane warning, etc. I love it! I have had the vehicle for six months and it doesn't states that oil change isn't needed yet. It is only 1/2 way toward oil changing. Love that it tells me when oil changing is needed. it is a 4 with Ecoburst. Wasn't sure if I would like 4 because I never had a 4. Last was a V-8 with power. So when I bought this explorer limited edition, I took it climbing in the mountains. It has climbing assist and it has the power. I was amazed. I wanted the pedals to adjust, which Explorer Limited Edition has. It has memory so different drivers push button and it remember the driver.

Pros

  • Technology and Entertainment: it is fully loaded, with cooling & warming seat, heating steering wheel, navigation, changing lane warning, etc. It is just the best. I love it!
  • Cost to Maintain: I had vehicle for six months and it doesn't states oil change is needed yet. It is only 1/2 way toward oil changing. Love that it tells me when oil changing is needed.
  • Power: it is a 4 with ecoburst. Wasn't sure if I would like 4 because I have never has a 4. Last was a V-8 with power. So when I bought this explorer limited edition, I took it climbing in the mountains. It has climbing assist and it has the power. I was amazed.
