The Best car you'll Ever buy

2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

My vehicle is very reliable. Gets decent gas mileage. I have driven all over the country in this vehicle. I've had it for 11 years and it still runs like it is brand new . It's very comfortable. All leather seats with a wood grain dashboard. Everything is automatic . It's got all the features. Fully loaded vehicle. This vehicle is awesome. People will love this vehicle if they like to do things outdoors. 4 wheel drive is amazing. I have taken this car to the mountains .

Still love this Explorer after 11 years, even with some mechanical issues.

2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

We love this car. 10-11 years later it still looks really nice and classy (Eddie Bauer edition) even with a few scratches. We've had to do a decent amount of mechanical repairs: radiator twice, evaporator coil replacement, transmission rebuilt, wheel hub bearings. And still I really like my car! It's quiet on the highway, a lot of cargo space, comfortable seats -back and front. One dislike is the blind spots. There are multiple so you have to be really careful.

In 2008 I am sure it was great!

2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

My car recently had a problems while driving which included brake problems and alignment issues. A lot of electrical parts on the car also do not work anymore including the running boards and the passenger seat moving backwards. When driving the car when it goes from 1/2 as if shifting gears, the car acts like it has problems gearing up.

Third row seating folds face down and give u a roomy flat trunk space.

2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

It's been very dependable since it was first purchased as a used vehicle nearly 3 years ago. Interior is very roomy and comfortable. Nice leather seats that are easy to wipe and keep clean is always a plus if you have children compared to cloth seats. It has provided for me a nice quiet comfortable ride without any problems.

My SUV is a great family car that can fit everything in it.

2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

It have a lot of space. Comfortable and has extra seats. It's a grey/green color and is 4 wheel drive. Can fit max of 7 people and working for towing boats and trailers. Drives really well, and turns smooth. Great family car for road trips and to take camping.

I would summarize my vehicle as The Light Workhorse

2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

My vehicle has power windows, air conditioning, sunroof, V8. The engine is fairly good and has decent power, it does need suspension work and a paint job. The top portion of the roof is rusting. But overall it has held up and is a very good daily driver.
