2013 Ford ExplorerCarla Graf - Chicago, IL09/08/2016
I love my Explorer! It has great room for family road trips. It's reliable, and so many comforters. I feel very safe in my big girl car. The wide wheel base makes it a very smooth ride. I love that it has great cargo room if I need it and both the 3rd AND 2nd row go down flat. I was surprised when car shopping that not all cars with 3rd rows have the 2nd row fold completely flat into the floor.
Made in the South, a groundbreaking series classic
1998 Ford ExplorerMarlette Torras - Polson, MT09/29/2015
Buyers of older used vehicles have an important dillema to solve first: how can they expect to deal with the expense and inconvenience of inevitable repairs? In the seminal series of the Ford Explorer, transformational electronics were added about 1996, with a diagnostic display from a trip computer. This gave the driver an advantage of calculating their mileage and MPG, checking tire pressure , etc.. All the new owner has to do is look at the mileage and then the milestone chart for maintenance, and calculate the risks. Everything still works in my vehicle, but I have put only one major ($550.00) and one minor repair on it in a year.
So Far- So Good
2013 Ford ExplorerFernando - Chicago, IL03/01/2015
I absolutely love the space on the driver 's side. The comfortable seat and adjustable controls make for a comfortable fit. The ride is absolutely smooth and handles rough surface roads well. I like all the little bells and whistles from the blind spot indicator in the side view mirrors to remote start from my 4th floor apartment.
