Nice traveling family vehicle. It's safe, comfortable and very reliable.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

3rd row seating makes for a 8 person seater. Super comfortable due to great leg room. Seats are nice and comfortable as well. Spacy, nice circulation of air during all times of the year. Drives smooth during all weather types. Accelerants nicely and brakes nicely as well. Great vehicle for a family, traveling or even just to have. The base model is just that a base model but still very nice. I love the backup sensors as well helps backing up a whole lot easier. Powered window controls make it easy to roll down or up windows. Child locks on inside door frame makes a parent feel a whole lot safer. Heat and air control system in back seat so they have full control over there temperature. Easy access to third row seating. Third row is easy to lay down. One thing I would like with the third row is if they laid down lower when put down. Also it would be nice if on the base model they back hatch was automatic from a touch of a button. Would make life a whole lot easier. Overall it's a very nice vehicle.

Ride in comfort and style with the 2014 Ford Explorer!

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I really have enjoyed owning my 2014 Explorer. The number one feature I like is comfort. This is actually the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. I've gone on many long road trips and have not gotten uncomfortable. Also the third row seating is very nice. I would like the ease of getting to the third row to be better, it can be tricky to lift the second row seat up to access the third row. I've really love to the paint job on my Explorer as well. Even though it is now 6 years old, I still feel like I'm driving a brand new car most days. Also getting spills out of the seats has been with such ease you would assume it had stain guard.

- Cassie F

The cool family car made for long trips and reliable performance.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

The explorer is a great sized vehicle for a family. It has great leather and creature comfort components. The seats are extremely comfortable and all the controls are at your fingertips. This car has been very reliable and great in New England weather. I love the latch system but only one seat in the third row has it which creates an issue when you try to put car seats in both rows. I wish I had captain chairs in the second row. However the car is easy to clean and the automatic seat folding buttons are super easy and convenient. Also plenty of cup holders.

- Kara B

Ford explorers are amazingly awesome.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I absolutely love my explorer! It is very comfortable to travel in with plenty of luggage room in the back. As well as plenty of room when we have cousins traveling with us with the third row. It is very easy to fold the seats to make room for everyone. Our explorer does not have all the bells and whistles others the same year have, but that does not make it any less awesome to us! Our kids will always prefer to ride in our explorer verse my husbands truck!

Best Vehicle I've ever bought!

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I love this vehicle. I love everything about it. It's comfy, it's sporty looking and doesn't look like a minivan, so easy to drive. I will never buy another vehicle with a backup camera- that's a game changer. I feel safe and my passengers are comfortable on long road trips. I struggle to work the navigation part, but I'm not a techy person, so I think the problem lies with me. It has the voice activated stuff, but I've only used it a few times.

- Lisa W

Live to explore in my Explorer

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I love the quiet ride, the size of the car makes me feel safe, it is a good looking car, gets pretty good gas mileage for a large car, I can open the back hatch from inside the car and close it, this car makes me feel safe, I live the backup camera, live the leather seats, I live the heated seats, has excellent air and heat and I would buy this type of car again and again. It is my first Ford product but it won't be my last!

Tow package capabilities are great and tows with ease.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

It is very basic but dependable. Haven't had any issues with it and has been very reliable. We took this on vacation and got great gas mileage for an SUV and were comfortable while driving the 16 states we visited. I like the tow package that came with this vehicle and have had zero issues towing our bayliner. Just wished it had more features for the basic model.

- Nicki B

Love my car because it's a real reliable SUV.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I have never had any performance issues. It's the right size for my family. It's a gas saver. The only thing I don't like that is non relevant is the windows are positioned too high for me. If I need to use a drive thru services, I have to jump up because of how the windows are positioned. Other than that, I love it!!

- Sandra R

Roomiest Vehicle for the Price.l

2014 Ford Explorer Base

The comfort level is high. Anywhere you sit is exceptionally equipped with air and has the roomiest of areas. The options are tremendous. I can multitask while driving because the familiarities are easily recognizable. I love my Explorer and plan on purchasing another one when needed but this one feels brand new still!

Great Car for College Students

2014 Ford Explorer Base

Being a young driver, this is my first car, and it has been very reliable. It drives very smoothly, sits high enough to have excellent views, and has endured many long road trips on vacations and to and from my college. The side mirrors have blind spot mirrors to compensate for blocked parts of the interior windows.

- Evan G

My Ford Explorer has NEVER ran hot.??

2014 Ford Explorer Base

It works well. Very reliable. I do have some trouble with power locks and windows. I have replaced the transmission once. I do like that the parts are readily available whenever and wherever In need them. Most of all my vehicle has never ran hot or shut off on highway. I do think it could of came with better tires.

Ford is a go to brand for my family

2014 Ford Explorer Base

Ford Explorer is a great vehicle. It is our first family vehicle and is great for everyday use. We utilize this vehicle for pretty much everything, we travel with my large family and road trip as often as we possibly can. The vehicle had normal wear & tear and I have no major issues with this vehicle

- Ernst L

A smooth riding, safe, family vehicle.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

Very reliable and spacious. A smooth ride, accelerates well on the highway. Lots of cargo space when the third row is folded down. When the third row is up it will fit 7 people. The sync system could be better but this is an older model, I'm sure it has gotten better in the newer vehicle models.

- Lance H

My Review of my Ford Explorer and why you should buy one for yourself!

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I love my Explorer! It seats 7 comfortably! The seats fold down to a flat level easily which makes it easy to haul things too! It rides smoothly and has lots of options to adjust seats, mirrors and pedals to ensure your comfort while driving! I would highly recommend a Ford Explorer to anyone!

- Jen H

Its durable and fantastic.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

Sensors can get annoying sometimes but it's a good car. There's no sensor on the cooling for some reason when there's one on everything else. Gas mileage could be better but it's good as is. You want room for like 7 people there you go. Get a different jack than the one it comes with.

- Ryan S

Our 2014 Ford Explorer one of the best family vehicles we have owned!

2014 Ford Explorer Base

I absolutely love my Ford Explorer! Not only is my Explorer stylish but provides my family comfort and is reliable. I would purchase another Explorer if and when we need to. This is probably one of the best vehicles we have ever owned. We have owned our Explorer for five great years!

- Elizabeth L

Explorer is a smooth ride!

2014 Ford Explorer Base

The Ford Explorer is comfortable! We have taken trips from Florida to New York and it's great for such a long ride. I can connect my phone via Bluetooth through the car's Sync feature. Driving is easy and smooth in this car as well. No problems at all with the explorer.

- Sophia V

My Ford Explorer: the jury is still out.

2014 Ford Explorer Base

So far, I enjoy driving my Ford Explorer; however, it has had a few problems. From time to time, it will have a slight pull. Also, I've received a few recalls since I bought it a year ago. Finally, the check engine light recently came on and not sure why!
