Great. Value, durable and dependable vehicle.
2006 Ford Explorer XLS
Very reliable vehicle. I have had very few problems with it and it has held up very well over the years. The trim package was adequate for my needs and it has been fun to drive. It now has over 204000 miles on it and it is still going strong. It is starting to show its age but for over 11 years it really looked good. I have had it for over 13 years now and will keep it until it completely breaks down which may be a while yet with how well it is running. I have been completely happy with my 2006 ford explorer. The interior is light beige and through a light color, it has not stained or blotched over the years. The cloth has held up well as has the carpet on the floorboards. The sound system has functioned well and continues to operate as it should. The suspension has held up well too. I have never had to have the shocks or struts replaced though it would probably improve the ride a bit after so many years. The engine is still running strong and it seems like it will for a while yet. Aside from regular maintenance, my explorer has needed few repairs. I have had to replace the windshield due to a rock hit that caused the glass to crack. All the electronics., lights, electric windows and door locks have held up well and continue to work. Some of the exterior trim pieces are starting to work loose but are still attached. It has been a great purchase and a vehicle I would consider again.
