Ford Explorer: Fit for a family of Explorers!

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

We are a family of four and our 2007 Explorer fits our needs perfectly. Both of our children are still in car seats and even with two car seats in the back seat there's plenty of room. The trunk provides adequate storage space. The ability to lift just the back glass saves a lot of effort. The vehicle drives great. It's very smooth. It also runs great. We have had a few minor issues such as a heating issue and we had to replace the spark plugs. Both of which were very easy fixes and could be done by my partner with ease.

Versatile and comfortable companion car.

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

I love my explorer, this the second one I have purchased over the years. I had a 4wd when I lived in a snowy climate & don't need that here in the south. The explorer was a very safe car in the snow & ice and had plenty of cargo space for just about any task I needed to complete. I used it for picking up building supplies & for moving. Great vehicle! This SUV rides smoothly & is comfortable to drive on long journeys.

The ride is very smooth, I barely feel any bumps in the road.

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

There are no exceptional features on my truck, it is very comfortable and has a smooth ride. It does have what people call 'the explorer crack' on the hatch on the back. It has cracked and split the door right above the handle on the hatch. It is a very nice truck other than that. Very minimal rust for being a Michigan vehicle (snow-salt).

Best vehicle on the road. The ford explorer is a very room vehicle.

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

My vehicle is very dependable I enjoy the way it is on the highway. It is good on gas and it good in the snow. If you keep the engine up to date it will last a long time. It is very room on the inside special if you have tall children. My husband also used it for pulling the trailer with it when he go and cut grass it haul really good.

- Lisa J

Great all around family SUV.

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

It is a very comfortable auto carrying 7 persons the seats are adjustable making it very comfortable. Very dependable has always been fuel efficient for an auto of that size . Has been a terrific auto both on the highway and off road. Would recommend this auto to anyone looking for an SUV that is reliable and dependable.

Third row seats Can pull campers/trailers

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

I love how big but small it is. It has third row seating but it's not a huge vehicle. The problem that I have is I am short so I have to have the seat so close to the steering wheel to reach the pedals (I'm 5'4). So sitting that close doesn't have me feeling so safe but other than that I love the car!

- Ashlyn K

a truck that is tough and dependable for everyday use

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

My vehicle is roadworthy with a few minor problems that were easily fixed!! Gas mileage is pretty good. Very tough vehicle that will last a long time with very few problems. Great for long hauls or to get groceries or taking it to the drive inn. Very roomy and comfortable for sleeping in

My Ford Escape: The Details

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

CD player needs to get replaced have a CD stuck, air works great, moonroof. Great heated seats on both sides, DVD player works well but has no sound. Great vehicle and has decent mileage as well. Leather seats get warm in summer is a downside but they are good and comfy

Ford explorer good size SUV

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

The car runs nice. It has enough space the back is big enough to load items as on grocery and small furniture if needed. However the car is a gas guzzler. I've never had any problems from the car and I keep it maintained my only issue is the gas. So overall great car.

- Michelle F

Reliable and dependable. No problems ever

2007 Ford Explorer XLT

- Josh C

I currently am not having any problems with my ford explorer. Very reliable, good in upstate New York snowy winters and very good on gas. The SUV is very roomy and comfortable. The features on the explorer are very up to date and make hands free very easy.
