Ok car, not the best. Would still recommend.

2008 Ford Explorer Limited

I love how easy it is to drive and handle. The steering wheel controls are pretty handy. I wish the headrest of the 3rd row didn't block my rear window so much and there isn't a lot of cargo space behind the 3rd row. That is a big minus. It's a pain to crawl back to the 3rd row, also. I wish there were an easier way to get back there. The heated seats are great and there seems to be ok leg room in the middle row.

In the Family of Ford Vehicles

2008 Ford Explorer Limited

The truck is very spacious with power folding third row seats. The door handles were a little surprising at first but it is an innovative design addition. There is also a Bluetooth feature that, when read in the manual, is easy to figure out. The gas mileage is also great for long trip. Putting mid-grade in the tank for a 3 hour drive I only burned an eighth of a tank.

review of 2008 ford explorer

2008 Ford Explorer Limited

this is a great ride. It is loaded with heated leather seats, 6 disk CD player, Nice heater and great air, hashmap system to find any address you enter, Bluetooth, hands free phone, cruise control and so much more. I do wish that I got better gas mileage but it is a 8 cyl and not a 6 cyl. It rides real nice for being a full size SUV.

It is a 4 door vehicle and it runs well

2008 Ford Explorer Limited

My car is in alright shape, it has a lot of mileage and some starter problems also takes up a lot of gas. It's not too old of a vehicle but isn't the car I'd prefer to have. The seats are comfortable and soft and the AC works well still after all these years. I am planning to get a new car soon

Nice car, Smooth ride that gets the job done of getting you from place to place.

2008 Ford Explorer Limited

The ride is very smooth. Minor problems throughout car though such as bearing has been broken, transmission has issues. The car is very comfortable though. Fits almost anything you need in the trunk. Very spacious. Gas mileage is an issue sometimes only running at 13 MPG.

Awesome Ford Explorer SUV with 3 rows of seats!

2008 Ford Explorer Limited

My vehicle has been very reliable. The only issue I have ever had was with wheel bearings. My vehicle has leather seats, sunroof/moonroof, and 3 rows of seats. It is very spacious which is great for multiple kids. It also is 4 wheel drive and is great in snow.
