Pros: "Reliable. Roomy. Comfortable."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Use it for everything...travel, golf outings, local driving. Do maintenance every 5 K (oil, ect.) I had to replace tires at 42000 and that has been the only major expense. Interior is not as good as my previous Explorer-headliner coming loose over the front windows, no cargo net and those crazy door openers. Overall tho it has been and is a great car."

"This vehicle was purchased with 60K on its and its has had so many repairs including a new tranny that is now leaking once again after 15K miles. Its definitely a Fix or Repair Daily aka FORD. Haven't owned a Ford since 1995 when I bought this one for the same reason lots of repair and a car that self destructed. When the Explorer is running its great, but even the shops around nickname this model as an Exploder!"

Explorer 2006 automatic transmission v6

"i bought this Explorer brand new in 2006. I've had no problem with it except some computer issues. However, I think these have been mistakes of the guys who did the service at the agency. I've had him for 57,800 miles and it is still running without any issues! I hope it will last for a little longer without the need of spending any big cash on it!"
