Great Family Vehicle and Spacious

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I have had my Explorer for a year and a half and I still love my car! Only problem about this vehicle is the blind spots are many, so you definitely have to use side mirrors and back up camera to view what is around you. I love that mine is the Sport, which can go 4-wheel drive when needed, plus it gets up to speed very quickly, if necessary. It is a very reliable vehicle when it comes to hauling sports equipment, musical instruments, photography props, etc. and still be comfortable for passengers. I love that I have the touch screen, a backup camera, the dual sunroof, it seats up to 7 people spaciously, has the automatic seat folding option for the third row, Bluetooth enabled and can answer/make calls with a click of button on steering wheel, also, the navigation capability is amazing on trips. This vehicle is a great family car for sure!

Get this great family SUV you won't regret it

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I love all the features it has. I have the automatic third row seating. All I do is push a button and the seats appear or disappear. It's great for hauling all kinds of things. We recently remodeled the inside of our house and it seemed to always fit everything we needed. It also is comfortable for our two 60 pound dogs. Another comfort item I love is ventilated seats. It gets hot and humid in Georgia. The seats are the best! The seem to work better than A/C. Your back and bum getting cooled is awesome. The seats are comfortable, it's roomy, great space, comfortable and with the third row makes it easy to fit a large family with car seats. If I had to change one thing...I'd buy a white one next time. Which is what I will do.

Room for extended rear facing.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

My vehicle has an issue with that park sensor. The transmission shifts into park correctly by the sensor tells me it is not in park when I got to turn off my car. That is the only issue it is large and I love being able to put down my third row, it is perfect for my dog. I bought this car when my daughter was still rear facing because I needed more room for her, this car has awesome second row legroom. I was able to extend the time she could rear face. My car has amazing heated seats!! We love the sun and moon roof so much fun in the summer.

- Rebecca M

Fantastic vehicle all around!

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I'm incredibly satisfied with my Ford Explorer. It's a large vehicle, but can still get up to 30 miles to the gallon. I have never experienced problems with my car, and I drive it around the country frequently. The leather interior is comfortable and easy to clean, and the seats are heated in both the front and the back. I love the push to start ignition, the sensors that detect my key and unlock the vehicle, and the sound system is also great!

- Taylor M

My car is amazing and I love the seat settings option!

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I absolutely love my ford explorer! The only issue I had was the battery dying. Besides that I have loved everything about it! I love that we got the sport. It has so many amazing features. I love that with a click of a button I can have the seating preferences changed from my husbands setting to mine. I feel so safe in the car and also think it is beautiful to look at. Everyone we know says the car is amazing!

- Amanda D

The Ford Explorer is roomy, comfortable and reliable.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I love my Ford Explorer! It's roomy and comfortable for our entire family. The third row really sold me so we're able to all travel in one car when family comes in town. The seat heaters are nice but living in AZ I should have opted for the air conditioned seats. It's been reliable and I love the look of it. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase of my Ford Explorer and would consider purchasing another one.

Ford Explorer: reliable and comfortable

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

My explorer has been extremely reliable. It currently has 68000 miles. The ride is smooth, very quiet inside, and has a lot of legroom. It had a third row seat. The third row is electric. There are three different settings to put that row of seats in. Storage is great, when u fold down the middle and third row. The ac is very effective, and it has rear controls.

- Gary D

Do not buy! Buyer please beware.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

Constant problems since vehicle was purchased. First the from bearings had to be replaced, then the back ones, weather stripping all falling apart, leather ripping on drivers side and console, and electrical issues. We love the look and drive of the vehicle but the make is not up to par. And to note, we do take very good care of our cars.

- Stephanie G

Fast Ford With twin turbos and a little aftermarket assist it's quick.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

Exhaust issues inside the vehicle has been the biggest issue to date. Other issues have come about and been resolved. Reliability on the road has been great. Fuel mileage isn't the best but that's to be expected in the Sport version of the Explorer. We do love this vehicle and the way it handles and is comfortable on long trips.

- Gary W

Love the lightning and how yuh can change colors.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I love this car. It is rest with the captains chairs in the back seat for kids. The third row is excellent. Folds down for storage when traveling. Performance is great. We have the sport and it gets up and goes whenever we need it to pass. Handles super nicely. Travels great in the highway. Love the sunroofs. Sounds system is awesome.

- Jamie L

My vehicle has a third row and this helps transport my 5 kids.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

I currently do not have any vehicle problems, performance, reliability, comfort, and features. My car is working well and I am satisfied with all of the above. I enjoy driving my ford explorer. The only thing I wish I would have done is gotten four wheel drive with the vehicle and this could have been purchased.

- heather W

Perfect and reliable family car.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

Perfect family car. Great for road trips. Reliable. Love the seat warmer and cooler. Great navigation system. Perfect amount of space for a family of 4-6. The third row is easy to install and stow. The back is comfortable for our dog who loves to ride in the car everywhere we go.

- Sara P

- Esther S

Best soccer mom vehicle around.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

Have had no issues outside of some rattling due to loose wires under the dash. It handles very well in the snow and handles well on the road. The explorer has plenty of space and leg room in the third seat. Large enough for a family and additional storage room.

- Michelle B

It is dependable and gets good gas mileage.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

My ford explorer is great. I take it in for routine maintenance and it has never given me any problems. It has room to carry our party of 5 and my kids sports bags. It gets great gas mileage and even almost 5 years later runs as good as when I first bought it.

- Heather M

They are long lasting car with good resale value.

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

This is a very good car to drive. There are no problem and the ride is very smooth. There are a lot of good features available and most of the things that need to be done on the car can be done yourself. There are many advantages to owning a ford explorer.

- Lisa K

The ford explorer is spacious and comfortable!

2015 Ford Explorer Sport

The ford explorer is extremely comfortable and spacious. It drives very smooth and I have yet to have any issues with the vehicle. The third row seating is very useful with having a big family. I am also very tall and can fit comfortably in the third row.
