2010 Ford ExplorerSteve - Fredericksburg, VA12/13/2011
What I like the most about my 2010 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD is just knowing that with the 4WD the problems of driving in harsh winter weather or bad roads or paths are severely mitigated. Coupled with the all leather interior, taut suspension and the outstanding capability to be able to see what is going on all around you on the road or in a parking lot, and the good looks that a bright red Eddie Bauer model displays, I know I did NOT go wrong when I purchased this vehicle. I had a 2003 Explorer XLT 2WD which I purchased new in June of 2003 but I sold it in 2010. I enjoyed driving this SUV and missing it so much probably drove me back to looking for a 4WD model, and moving up to an Eddie Bauer model. My 2010 Explorer is very agile on the open road and it responds quickly to emergency maneuvers. I've been getting 21 mpg on trips in excess of 100 miles so that definitely is a plus since the normal expected mileage for this vehicle is 13 mpg in town and 19 on the highway. Great vehicle!

The Ford Explorer is a great vehicle for getting around town as well as traveling longer distances. It provides ample space for luggage and additional passengers. I especially like the comfort aspects of the vehicle. It is quiet and drives very smoothe.
