Great family vehicle with enough room for everyone.

2011 Ford Explorer Base

once in a while the check engine light comes on for a leak in evaporation and there is exhaust leaks. It is a very reliable vehicle that we trust on every long trip. The seats are comfortable in each row, the driver's seat has the most ability to adjust. There is plenty of room between each row for comfort. We love the pockets on the back of the seats for storage. Great family vehicle.

Great family SUV and reliable for everything else.

2011 Ford Explorer Base

It drives so smooth. It has lots of space. Great family car. It is not bad on gas. Excellent for long trips. Great in the winter and rain. It has barely given me any problems. Consistent with oil changes has kept the SUV running well. I enjoy how it offers different terrain systems to drive in.

pluses and minuses of the 2011 Ford Explorer

2011 Ford Explorer Base

this car is great it has a very high quality interior and the sync interface is decent would have liked to see a capacitive screen but it is ok. One thing that gets on my nerves about this car is that it has had many recalls it is quite annoying having to keep taking it back to the dealer.

- Sam G

Great car definitely recommended

2011 Ford Explorer Base

Great car , haven't had any problems ! The features are great and everything has been lasting a long time before replacement. Drives great, has good gas mileage. Interior is in great condition even after many years. Easy to maneuver, low complications. Definitely would recommend to anyone

Safe feeling car but always in the shop

2011 Ford Explorer Base

Often has recalls (like all the time). It's GPS system is very glitchy. Backup camera stopped working. It often has other random issues. This month, it cost me $1100 in repairs. This is not out of the norm. I had to replace all of the AC lines. I have had to replace the braking system.

I love my ford explorer. Great storage and very safe.

2011 Ford Explorer Base

I feel extremely safe in my car. It very nice looking on the road. It has great storage space. It was 3 rows and can fit seven people. The downfall can be the low gas mileage in small cities. The car is reliable and when I need a new car I will get another ford car.
