Just the right size: Ford Explorer does the job to carry 7 people in style.
At first I thought it might be too big since I have never had a SUV but once I took a test drive I saw that it is not as big off the ground as I thought; in other words, I thought SUVs were gigantic trucks. Two things I do not like about it is (1) the head rests on the 3rd row at first made it hard for me to see through back window; they shouldn't had made them so high; but now I am used to it and can see good; I do not like the headrest on passenger's seat that is in front with driver because sometimes it is uncomfortable to passengers and I have to tell them to incline the seat for more comfort. The next thing that is a problem is the lever that you must pull to flatten the second row so someone can get to the third row. It can be hard; it recently broke because it is too hard to pull so it broke off; now we have to either go through the other side which is not broken to get to third row or pull the strap that is located on the back of the 2nd row chair by reaching our hands back; and of course, that is not easy. Overall I am very pleased with our car and would buy it again.
