2006 explorer - an excellent choice.

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

My 2006 ford explorer performs very well. It is a v8 powered four wheel drive vehicle and I have never been stuck no matter what the weather. It has a large carrying capacity and also has a third row of passenger seats that can be folded down to increase the cargo capacity. The ride is comfortable and firm and the vehicle is easy to control and stable on the road. When I take long trips in this vehicle I do not get tired. Both front seats and the brake and accelerator pedals are electrically adjustable. The displays are informative and, for a v8 engine, on long trips I can get easily over 20 miles per gallon gas mileage.

The Only Vehicle For Me!!

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

I absolutely love my Ford Explorer. It's an incredibly reliable vehicle that's both attractive and practical for everyday life. It's easy to drive and maintain also, though I wish some of the parts weren't so expensive. I bought my Explorer used in 2011, (it's a 2006) but it has taken good care of me and come in very handy for several long distance moves. If I ever get another vehicle it will definitely be another Explorer!

Excellent vehicle for a big family

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

This vehicle is extremely comfortable to drive for long periods of time. There's enough space to seat myself, my husband, and our four kids plus one more. This vehicle has been very reliable for us so far. The only bad thing about it is the gas mileage. Other than that it's a perfect family car.

Amazing vehicle. Great for families

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Spacious, performance is good. Family car. Reliable and comfortable. I like my explorer, gets me to where I need to be. Low maintenance. It can be a gas guzzler. But overall it is a good vehicle. No aux cord input. Great storage space. Trunk is roomy and has a cover to protect grocer

2006 ford explorer Eddie Bauer edition.

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Best SUV I have ever owned. The Eddie Bauer edition is awesome. Sunroof, heated seats, 6 CD changer, automatic seat adjuster, 3Rd row seat so it seats 7. It is a 2006 but everything is still working fine. I think if it ever dies it will be like losing a best friend for me.


Ford explorer, four wheel drive selection preferred to all wheel drive.

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

The biggest problem I had with my explorer so far was leaking transmission hoses going to the radiator. I live out in a rural area (farm) and the explorer is essential in the winter. The part I like is that I can choose between the 4x4 I like instead of all wheel drive.

06 ford explorer the best vehicle.

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

There is nothing wrong with my vehicle. I love the vehicle. The only thing I would consider changing is that I would make the vehicle three row of seats for bigger families. I would also maybe add a DVD player to keep kids oc. Cupid while in the car on long trips.

- Crystal S

Great car. Sportier than you'd think.

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Good reliable car pretty good gas mileage great performance very comfortable would recommend to other potential buyers. Has not needed much work other than to maintain it regularly. Great family car would buy another one. Hope this is helpful for future buyers.

Touchscreen navigation system

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

I've had no issues with my truck which I've owned for 5 years now. I love it. Very reliable. Fits our family of 5 comfortably. The navigation system is a great feature along with the touchscreen. I highly recommend buying this type of vehicle. Great purchase

comfortable and spacious vehicle.

2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

It has a very comfortable ride, easy to handle, decent gas mileage, roomy interior and great options available. Kids really like the movie player in the back but I do not like the screen being in the middle, it makes it hard to see in the rear view mirror.
