Awesome and reliable vehicle for the family or just a couple.

Driver window and seat motor stopped working. The window was easy to replace and the seat is stuck in a position so I can still drive it without moving it back or forth so we haven't replaced that motor yet. We love the Explorer though, it fits eight people with room still for storage. It rides smooth and any issues that arise just from wear and tear are super easy to buy parts for and fix at home ourselves. We have owned three Explorers through our lifetimes and we prefer it over all vehicles we have owned so far. It is been reliable and is comfortable for long road trips or just short in town stops. It always starts. Great in the snow and does not slip. Kids have all learned how to drive with it and find it to be quite easy. Love the rear heating for the passengers.

Fords are built tough and long lasting

I've had issues with the radio volume control on the steering wheel which was fixed by Ford after going to the shop twice. I have an ongoing noise in the dash area which Ford has not fixed while it was under warranty. My Explorer is very reliable. When I first bought my SUV my children where in intermediate so they fit perfectly with the third row. Now that they are in high school and college they're a little squished because no one fits in the third row now. He Bluetooth feature is wonderful. The ease of the 4 wheel drive function in the vehicle. The location of the 4 wheel drive button needs to relocated because I've hit it by accident a few times.

2010 ford explorer XLT - plenty of room for all your needs.

I currently own a 2010 ford explorer XLT. It has plenty of room for 7 people, and there is enough room for storage or bags. I can do a large shopping day or pack bags for a weekend away without compromising on space for passengers. The car runs smoothly, and I am very happy with it. The only drawback that I have found is that the gas mileage is not ideal. I wish I was able to get more out of it during city driving. Highway mileage is not bad. I love my back-up sensors which, give me a little added help when parking. There is also lots of storage space and compartments. I would recommend my ford explorer to anyone looking for an SUV with space for 7.
