Pros

When you first open the door, it has a customized step up to which you can get inside, it automatically slides out and in. It makes you feel like a princess. Most Fords trucks, just have a regular built up step up.

Cons

Gas prices are high....to fill tank is 60.00 or so

Spacious, Confort, Ride In Luxuary — Average Gas 60.00 a week. This car overall is great for taking family, friends out of town. It's a beautiful car to ride in with a many people. It has a third row, which can be removed to make a bigger trunk. It has sensor, sun roof , nice vehicle.

Great Styling, Safe, Sufficient Power, Ride comfort

Cons

Gas Mileage at best is about 16.4... 4x4 v6! Had problems with thermostat housing... CRACKED and leaked out all the coolant. If I did it again, I would have gottten the V8. They are more reliable.

Reliable, Good Looking, Smooth! — I've had problems with the thermostat housing cracking. The v6's aren't very reliable with the transmission. Get a V8. Same engine and tranny as a f150. Good car, but try if you can, and get an older Expedition. They are a lot more reliable.

Excellent Mid-size Suv — Love the fact that ours has the 3rd row for the additional seating. One of the most spacious 3rd rows we sat in. Downside to that is you sacrifice cargo space with the 3rd row up. Smooth ride for road trips yet nimble enough for city traffic. DVD is a must with kids! V8 and 4wd means that I'm driving in almost all conditions. All the necessary safetly features and then some. ABS, airbag (front and side), etc. No overall complaints. Repair costs are speculative at best since we've not needed any service after almost 64000 miles. VERY happy with our SUV.

Very Poor Reliabibility!!!! — Horrendous transmission problems that have taken the dealer over seven months to solve plus a myriad of other smaller issues make me conclude that I never will buy a Ford vehicle again. A piece of crap that when it works is quiet and comfortable. What a difference with my previous Honda, Toyota and Mistubishi products!

If you bike, kayak, camp or travel with a family, this is a great vehicle for the money.

Cons

If you need a zippy commuter car, this is not the vehicle.

I Only Buy American-made, Am A Ford Girl And Love My Explorer. My Only Vehicle! — I own a 2007 after driving a '95 Explorer to 176k miles. The 2007 v6 is slightly underpowered for its larger size and not quite as zippy as the '95 v6. However, it is better for braking, handling, no road noise, stylish and incredibly comfortable in every seat though I'm usually the driver. I wish it got better gas mileage as this is what I commute in. I camp and kayak on weekends so it is a must have for me. I live in upstate NY where the driving conditions are wet, snowy and icy and wouldn't drive anything else.

2007 Explorer — The Fourth Generation Explorer will be the last Generation of the Model to use a body on frame design, switching to a uni body design in the future. The 2007 Explorer is a very utilitarian vehicle with seating for 7 and a absolutely gargantuan cargo area. The Explorer's handling is adequate for a Mid Sized SUV with acceptable power ratings for the V-6 engine. The Explorer has required little beyond standard repairs and maintenance.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Our Ford Explorer 4x4 — Gas consumption is alot as it is a 4.0 litre...but living in UAE makes that not a problem as gas is so cheap! 1 Gallon is around 90pence! £14 fills up the tank! Fan is playing up a bit behind drivers steering wheel...makes small noise..left rear indicator gave out after 1 year. Very sturdy car indeed though. Electric seats and windows and wings makes it luxurious for us...we love that is so easy to drive...it's automatic also which we prefer. 7 seats and big boot. Ability to do 4x4 racing in dessert if you want. Cost £12000 cheaper than in UK!

Good Vehicle. By Ken
