"I purchased a 2012 Ford Explorer Limited based on ratings, looks, mileage estimates and test ride. The vehicle had to be ordered and the rebate at the time of ordering was $1,000. The rebate was $500 when the vehicle was received and I was told $500 was it and it didn't matter what the rebate was at order time. We have since had problems with the mytouch and sync features which required shop visits. The latest shop visit is to fix the ventilation system which doesn't blow heated air to the passenger side. I have also been disappointed in the mileage (20 mpg at 70 mph),air conditioner performance and engine power. I expected more given the price paid."

"Too much techology that doesn't work. This would be a good Explorer if the SYNC would actually stay working."

"I really like the looks of the new Explorer. The power and acceleration are very good. The gas mileage is acceptable at almost 23 mpg. The handling is OK. The brakes are poor. The interior is terrible. The passenger handle is placed too far forward, the well in the console is too deep, and the only clock are 1/8 inch digits that only the driver can see. The seats are uncomfortable after one hour of driving. The seating position for a 6ft 3 in driver is not right. The dash with SYNC is a nightmare. I want a GMC Yukon."

"Myfordtouch is absolutely horrible....locks up..and then no electronics function at all. Ford customer service offered to provide me with a $400 to purchase a GPS - mobile device to use when the system fails... (are you kidding me.?) ...what is that...why not just FIX THE PROBLEM..!! The all wheel drive system also has a shake to it on acceleration.....that they can not fix after repeated attempts. Oh...and the brakes had to be replaced at 5000 miles. This product is JUNK..beware.."
