Pros: "Roomy, family car, nice style inside and out"

Cons: "Electric transmission and stalling problems"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"The car had issue with the transmission when I first bought it and come to find out this is a very BIG issue with other 2006 explorers. Its nothing crazy just jumps occasionally when I put it into reverse. i was able to get over that. However now the car is older and well she just goes out on me. Ford cant seem to find out what is wrong because no codes show up. However it keeps stalling out on me. In a course of a month it has stalled on the road 9 times and 2 times parked. The overall look inside and out is great. Great family car except that fact that it flakes on me. Good secure fixtures for the car seats and the handle bars to get in are great. A lot of people had confusion on how to get out of my car. The handles are in a weird location."

"The Ford Explorer is the nicest vehicle I have ever owned. It fits me in all categories. It is beautiful enough to give you a little class without drawing attention to you. The interior is so comfortable and spacious without being a big boat. Good gas mileage and absolutely no problems in the 7 years I have owned it. I am buying a Ford Explorer Sport and my best friend has been waiting for me to sell him my car! Best Car Ever!"

"I have owned 7 Explorers. I usually trade every 3 years , but I didn't care for the new body style. I use this to carry a kayak, pull my boat, carry lumber, carry rock/stone for projects, yet my friends ask me to borrow it for their wedding parties to travel. It is classy, it shines up like a new penny! Paint quality is superb."

"As usual ford missed the chance to address their famous transmission issue. This was the first thing I had to fix on this car, and problem is still on going. This has led me to finance another vehicle, which will not be a Ford."
