"I bought my Explorer XLS used-- like the big truck feel, but it's not imposing. The 4wd is great in all but thick wet snow (what is??), not much difference between hi/lo to me. I drive 60 miles round trip per day, 60-80mph, runs real strong. Not a porsche, but you feel better crusing on the thruway in this (and lots of room to boot)."

"With BIG regret I traded my Escape in on a Explorer,Shortly after buying starting have problems wheel bearings, rear end, tranmission, brake problem and some other problems. Ignorance on my part I did not get the ext.warranty. I have paid for this car twice with what I have spent on repairs, a rebuilt tranmission, a new tranmission. Problem after problem.I will never buy another Explorer. All the tranmission problems people have had with the Explorer it looks like Ford would have done a recall!!!!!"

"This is my second Explorer and I am very pleased. I also own a Suburban that has had three transmissions and my Explorer has been virtually worry free. And I take care of any minor concern. With 33,000 miles on it I have had only one minor problem that the dealer cannot fix it seems after three tries...the driver side rear window will not roll down. They fix the switch and it goes out after a month. I noticed that I am not the only one so it must be on most of the 2005s. Drive is solid, gas mileage ok (16-21), looks are great, and the advance trak is swift. Great AC front and rear for 103 Dallas heat."

"The only complaint I can offer for this vehicle is the lethargic shifting between reverse and drive. Other than that, I have been very satisfied with this vehicle."
