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

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!

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Need a big parking space!

Our 3rd Explorer — Great for what we need - hard to cart arround a Great Dane in a sedan. Lots of space, the only full size SUV that has back seats that truly fold flat and do not leave any gaps for feet to get stuck in. Plus, it looks good, I like the new headlights and the tailgate.

Pros: They still offer only 2 rows and they fold entirely flat

Cons: it's an SUV, gas mileage sucks

Ford Explorer Limited 2007 — One of the best cars ever....if it wasn't for the fuel consumption ;) Couldn't ask for more on an icy slippery road in winter or towing your boat to your cottage in summer.....plenty of interior space and storage area...powerful engine and good finish BUT....... The fuel cosumption is ridiculous

Pros: Everything except fuel consumption

Cons: Effect on your wallet at the gas station
