running boards window guards and hood deflector.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I love my explorer it's dependable nice looking. SUV is very roomy. Bucket seats in front, bench in the middle, and 2 separate seats in the back. Not so good on gas mileage about 17-18 miles to the gallon. Has a really good heating and air conditioning system. I also have heated seats and heated side mirrors. I have a sunroof. I have a backup camera in my rearview mirror instead of the console. Good radio system, it has a CD player. Also have window guards, running boards, and defector on the front hood. Change the oil every 5000 miles. I also had to get the molding around the drivers door fixed. Was peeling off every time I opened the door. It has cruise control. I have 41,000 miles on it and I need to get new tires on it. Had front and back brakes put on it. I also have the weathertech mats in the car.

Ford Explorer XLT is a great family vehicle.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I really enjoy all the room in the vehicle. The third row option is very nice. When the third row is folded down, it gives a lot of room for groceries or strollers. It drives smoothly and is quiet. The sunroof and moonroof is one of my favorite features. The drive modes of road, sand, woods, and snow comes in handy when living in the Midwest. The touch screen is also a nice feature. It has Bluetooth option for phones which is very nice to be hands free talking. The heat and air control for the back seat is nice when you have passengers, especially children who may want it warmer than the front.

- Samantha H

The Explorer handles not only dirt roads but extremely icy roads great.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

We love our 2015 Ford Explorer. It gets great mileage, I usually can get about 25/26 mpg; and only costs around $40 to fuel up. It is extremely comfortable, from the outside it doesn't look that big, but once you sit in the seats you find quite a bit of legroom as well as enough space between seats. With the third row seat we can Fit up to seven people in the car. Or having the third row down we can fit our dog along with all our luggage. The amenities are great, we love the bluetooth hands free calling feature. As well as heated seats (we have snow anywhere from 9-6 months out of the year).

- Claire H

Sometimes I just get in to feel comfortable.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I simply love my SUV. It is very reliable. I have been told by passengers that it is always comfortable riding in my explorer. I feel that it is easy to drive and rides smoothly on the highway. I can enjoy a road trip for thirteen hours or just driving around the town. Only thing I dislike is the gas mileage. What I really love is the back seats. You change them into seats to sit in and stay in the vehicle. While watching the sunset and then searching for stars later.

Ford explorer dependable with its share of quirks.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

My ford explorer is a good dependable vehicle. It does have its fair share of quirks and issues like the wheels the lugs come loose and the studs have already broken a few times. I also wish the seats were more comfortable. However overall I have had minor issues with the explorer and have been satisfied with the purchase. I would recommend explorer and would consider it as a top contender for my next vehicle.

- Tye K

It lets you Bluetooth your phone to it.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

Ford has nice cool cars, but they broke a lot and are expensive to fix. When we first got the car brakes stopped working we had to buy a new one. Stopped working a couple months later and that was more stuff that we had to fix. Then the trunk motor broke and we had to get that fixed. And the step pads are deteriorating and came off completely. And so did the pieces of rubber that are on the windshield.

- Natalia R

The flakes in my paint make my black ford explorer stand out.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I really love my 2015 Ford Explorer. I really can't find too much wrong with it. I love the all leather bucket seats that I have and the full roof sunroof. I love the automatic truck, the 20 inch stock rims, projector headlights, fog lights, turn signal lights on my side view mirrors, etc. Over all the Ford Explorer is a good all around sport utility vehicle. Definitely a must buy.


Ford Explorer a mom's best friend

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

My Ford Explorer is very family friendly for an on the go mom. I am able to fit my kids, dog and additional family members for daily activities. The rear area has its own heat/ac control which the kids love. I absolutely love my heated seats and cannot live without them especially in Wisconsin. The comfort of long drives has also been tested for the man road trips we have taken.

- Elena R

Safe, Reliable, Roomy Family Car

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I have absolutely loved having this car. The color has a shimmer to it. This is my second Ford and it is the most reliable car. I am a new mother and feel like my daughter and I are safe in this vehicle. The seats are roomy and comfortable. I've also been a passenger in the 3rd row and did not feel trapped in and had plenty of room as an adult back there.

- Melinda P

Love my power liftgate and remote starter!

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I love the way my explorer rides and drives. It goes really good in the snow. The added features of power liftgate and remote starter were well worth the extra money. The only thing I do not like is that it is very difficult to get in and out of. I feel like I am climbing down into and up out of the vehicle, being short makes it much more difficult.

- Christie S

Amazing 2015 Ford Explorer, best driving car!

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

My Ford Explorer is the smoothest driving / riding car I've ever drove or rode in. It is very comfortable, good on gas, has third row seating. I haven't had any problems with this vehicle at all. I've kept regular oil changes done as needed. This car is fairly fast and will get up and go quickly. This is a 10/10 car in my book!

- Sarah L

Great Mom car that isn't van.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I love my Explorer, It drives smooth, plenty of room for 3 kids(2 still in car seats), all of my oldest sons sport equipment and I absolutely love the rear camera. The seats are comfortable, back seats are roomy enough for a grown man. I do wish we had went for the sun roof and the rear view camera acts up from time to time.

- Kae P

Good comfort, food services 2nd hand car

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

Nice. Really comfortable. Good ford customer service. Seven seats. Both driver and passenger seats are heatable. Can fold both rows easily. Tailgate is easy to use. Bluetooth enabled can have more than one phone sink up to it. I can't spell good. Has radio. Was a leased car before purchase it didn't leased it never had yet.

2015 ford explorer XLT transmission issues.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

The explorer has been great besides the transmission. I have had a lot of issues with it shifting hard while driving. I have had to take it to the dealership 5 different times for this. It mostly happens when the car is in reverse or on the freeway while trying to pass someone. Other than that it has performed really well.

- Jessica B

The ford explorer XLT is roomy and comfortable.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

The ford explorer XLT has a ton of extra elbow and leg room. I like how much space there is for the 3rd row. It drives in any weather condition automatically switching from two wheel to four wheel drive. I like how all areas are easily accessible. Only con for me is the lack of little compartments to put my things.

- Lindsey R

I just love my 2015 Explorer is very comfortable and have a lot space

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I love my explorer is super comfortable and have so many features like the digital radio. Is very economic in gas. The shape and the color are amazing. The ac is super cold and the heater is perfect. Have a lot of space for luggage and other stuff when we are traveling. The design of the explore 2015 is beautiful

- Nelly F

Comfortable, sporty, and spacious.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

This vehicle is very comfortable with a nice look. Many options. No problems with my current vehicle. Would recommend to others! The 3rd row is a nice feature, but storage is an issue if you have a lot of luggage. The car itself is not big and bulky, so a small person like me can feel comfortable in it.

- Erika H

It is a wonderful family vehicle.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I wish it had electric start. Also wish it had the steering wheel warmer. Other than that I love my car. It has four wheel drive seat warmers in front. I guess that would be nice in the back also. It has the tow package. I guess it could have more storage room. It is roomy for my family.

- Tina S

Fits a chicco NextFit car seat well

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I have no issues with my car. It has been exceptionally reliable, and safe. I was looking for a vehicle I would feel my child would also be safe and secure in. Our large car seat fits comfortably in the middle of the second row of seats. It's spacious. Travels well. No complaints

- Shannon B

The navigation system is amazing.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

The ford explorer has plenty of room for people to sit and also have luggage with being uncomfortable. The ride is nice and smooth and quiet. The navigation in the ford is exceptional compared to other vehicles. I have owned several explorers and all have been very reliable.

- Stephanie E

We love our explorer - safe family car.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I love my ford explorer! It has a large touch screen display and a remote start which is great in the winter. It handled very well on many different types of terrains and makes me feel safe every time I drive it. I feel very comfortable with my little one in the back seat.

- Bridget O

The space between the rows of seats

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I have a ford explorer with 2 row seats and there is a passageway between the 2 rows so people don't have to climb over each other to get in and get out. It has good gas mileage and the dash features are very easy to use. There is also very good storage space in the back

- Marie B

Great vehicle to purchase.

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

Smooth ride, large enough for 3 kids and 3rd row option. Great on gas mileage and love the 4 wheel drive. Very roomy and worth every penny. Has a 5 star safety rating with controls in the back for air. Has GPS navigation and a sun moonroof. Large trunk space.

- Michelle L

2015 Ford Explorer XLT This car has been wonderful and is great for traveling!

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I absolutely love my Ford Explorer! It is a very reliable car with great upgrades such as heated seats, DVD players, and Bluetooth connection. It seats seven passengers comfortably and is great for traveling. If you have a family, this is the car for you!

- Brittany B

Modern SUV with 3rd Row Seat

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

I have had my Ford Explorer for over 4 years and it has been a very dependable vehicle. I love having the third row seat because I can carpool my grandchildren. I would definitely consider another Ford Explorer when I'm ready to purchase a new vehicle.

- Marie B

A Ford Explorer is a great SUV

2015 Ford Explorer XLT

It's a great vehicle. Only problem the front struts has broke but under extended warranty. I would recommend this car to anyone with a family of 6 very comfortable. The captain seat are a must in the second roll, specially if you have kids in car seats.

- Sadie J
