    2009 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4x4 — A really great family car with excellent handling in all weather. Nice heated leather, sunroof, sound system with sync, towing package, and automatic 4 wheel drive. Luxurious interior. I really like the third row seating and luggage rack on top.

    Pros: Luxury and All Weather Reliability

    Cons: none

    2009 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WDReview

    Good Vehicle — I'm a car person, not an SUV person. This car does NOT fit my style. IT IS A QUALITY MOTOR, just not my type. Oh, and it's not as much fun to drive as my Mitsu Eclipse was, DUH! It looks fine, but mine is white with a beige interior so it's really dull. Gas mileage is good for an SUV I guess...

    Pros: It works

    Cons: It's ugly

    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
