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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of upgrade features.  Reliable.  Stylish.  Good power.  4wd.  7 seats

Cons: Gas mileage.

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!

Pros: Good power, comfortable

Cons: The least reliable vehicle ever

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 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.

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.)

Pros: upscale interior, great cargo volume, can handle a dirt road or two

Cons: Poor Gas Milage, Styling could be better

Good Vehicle. By Ken

Could use a little more power. The 3.5L V6 is just not quite enough. However, I'm sure my mileage is much better than if it had a V8, so I'm not really complaining all that much. Otherwise, a very nic... Read More
