Great buy for a growing family

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

We were looking for a mid size SUV that could provide comfort and fuel efficiency. The Explorer was able to provide a lot of features for a reasonable price without sacrificing comfort. We were able to travel over 1300 miles and all three kids and luggage was able to fix comfortably. The fuel cost was very reasonable, we did not have to stop too often to fuel up and the Explorer did not have a problem keeping up with traffic. We did not buy new but we were able to get a great deal on our Explore and got everything we were looking for at a reasonable price. The vehicle is able to inform you of every detail pertaining for your trip, oil change, tire pressure, and much more. The hands free is very useful with kids in the car and for safety. We are still working on getting to know all the features the car comes with, we have only had this car for two weeks and we keep finding new features every day. The Explorer came with a sport drive that helped us travel to the mountains and did not strain the engine going uphill. I have had other vehicles that offer the sports drive but still struggles going uphill. The third row offers extra space for additional passengers and can comfortably fit a growing teenager. The third row also offers an outlet to be able to charge devices. The third row is able to be stowed away offer additional cargo space for items much larger.

Great car, not so great computer function

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

We have had multiple problems with several of the computer run systems. Our auto positioning of the driver's seat has malfunctioned. Also had an issue with the heat/cool function of the seats. The dealership seems to.have fixed those issues. However we have had multiple and continuing issues with the touch screen that controls navigation, phone, climate and entertainment functions. The issue seems to have started when we installed a computer component that hadn't been installed when the car was manufactured. Despite several trips to the dealer this problem persists and they seem unable to fix it. We also had problems with the third row seats stowing appropriately. The positives are that the driver's seat has many adjustments to get you in a comfortable driving position and is easy to adjust. It is comfortable to drive daily and on long road trips. Nice cargo space when 3rd row is down. Third row has decent leg room. And it gets decent gas mileage. It also seems like it is impossible to lock your.keys in this vehicle. The auto start (when properly functioning) is great for warming up or cooling down the car based on outside temperature.

All items easy to use and operate.

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

Vehicle is white no trim. Have problems with gps sometimes works other times not. Trouble with seats to come down in so can get dogs into. Have 5 dogs from 7 lbs to 140 lbs so do not have too much time to play around so must keep to get them in. Good carpeting and center area to hold a lot of items. Doors have areas to hold drinks and other items. 3 rows of adjustable seats that can be taken out or left in with a lot of storage spaces throughout. Completed dash board with lots of items at your fingertips. Sun roof that can be opened up to outside air or closed to the interior of the car. Front and rear air conditioner and heat control with controls in fans off and on. Air bags all through out front and back as well as in doors and on dashboards. All controls at fingertips and owners manual with directions for uses in all items when necessary as well sizes shapes and phone numbers for you to call and where items are to go. There are pictures of the images and the items so you can use and also items numbers for you to call for as well.

2016 Ford Explorer Limited -Great power -Above average GPA -Luxury options

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

The Ford Explorer Limited edition is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. It has every luxury item I could want including heated and cooling seats, power everything, heated steering wheel and the list goes on. The vehicle has great power and gets on the gas with the touch of the petal. The GPM is fairly good. It averages 20 gpm overall. On the hwy it gets around 25 gpm and on the city streets it averages around 18 gpm. The third row seating is a great option as well. The seats are small and would not fit a grown adult however it is perfect for children and is a nice option to quickly pop up extra seats.

Ford Explorer: Making family life easier.

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love almost everything about my vehicle. The hands free controls work great. The back up camera picture is super clear and makes me confident when I am backing up. The car reminds me when I need an oil change, which is a lifesaver because I often forget. The interior is great. I can fit 3 car seats in the middle row, which frees up my entire back end for cargo. The seat fold super easy and also set back up quickly. The only issue we have had with this vehicle so far was a computer glitch. It was an easy fix though. I would highly recommend a Ford Explorer to my family and friends!

Blue Ford Explorer limited 2016

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love my Ford Explorer it is perfect for my family I love how roomy it is and all the additional features that are included such as sun/ moonroof, touchscreen controls for radio, navigation, calls and climate inside car. I love how my child can access controls from the backseat with the additional controls accessible to her as well as USB connection and outlet to plug other devices in. The only thing I dislike about the vehicle is that my husband cannot drive it comfortably, he is 6'2' and the driver seat doesn't go back far enough for him

- Patricia M

Comfortable SUV, even for long trips there are seat massagers!

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love my explorer-limited. I haven't experienced any problems other than a few minor cosmetic things covered under warranty. It is a very reliable, comfortable SUV. My model has all of the little features that add up to be amazing such as the leather heating and cooling seats in front and rear, seat massagers, front and back cameras, double moon roof, the fold down seats for extra space when we need to load up the car with things. Road trips are comfortable in this vehicle. It is very spacious, reliable and an all around beautiful SUV.

- Mandy C

Love our 2016 Ford Explorer

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

Our explorer is very roomy. Drives smooth, loves the options like the seat heaters and adjustable temp on both sides. Seats seven people which is great because we have two girls who play sports and always have multiple kids in our car and lots of sports equipment to carry. Gets good gas mileage as well. Love that when I have my hands full I can open the hatch with a button. One thing I don't like is when I am putting stuff in the back sometimes it starts to close and it has closed on my head as well as my daughters head too.

- Michelle S

Overall, it has everything you need

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

The car is very luxurious on the inside. It has leather interior and looks nice with the chrome accents. IT is spacious and has enough room in the trunk. The white exterior looks amazing and the front grill is strong and sturdy. The black carpet on the interior makes for great stain covers if stains get on the carpet. The Bose sound system sounds amazing when I listen to my music. I appreciate the point screen access for temp, entertainment, navigation, and phone

- Rebecca B

Love the explorer so far. I really cannot say anything bad about the explorer.

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

Problems bought it used looks like windshield was replaced but trim was installed wrong. One side blew off. Alternator was bad putting too much juice to battery all was replaced under warranty. Since then everything has been ok. Love the backup and front camera, heated steering wheel, heated seats, I wish it had a CD player with which you can put more than one CD in. I like the how the brake and the accelerator pedal move for easier use.

Ford Explorer limited fuel flex

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love the heated and ac seats along with the heated steering wheel. It has two sunroofs and a backup camera. If you or someone gets too close to the car it will let you know. It has third row and is amazing for road trips. The third row folds down and you have a lot of trunk space. If the door is locked you just need the key on you and it will unlock

- Hayley B

Great Quality Vehicle. Worth every penny

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love my ford explorer. It has plenty of room for my family plus extra room for luggage during long road trips. It is good on gas and drives smoothly. It is the best car I have owned so far. I don't think I will get any different make or model in the future. It's a very reliable and dependable vehicle and worth every penny.

- Emily S

Most comfortable and stylish SUV

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love how comfortable my explorer is, it's super comfortable on long rides. It gets decent gas mileage, but I wish it got a little Bit better. I love the touch screen and everything is right at your fingertips as well as on the steering wheel. Overall performance is positive, wish I would of gotten the tow package.

- Mia B

Love all the room and features

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

I love everything about it.It's very roomy and my tall husband and son can fit in comfortably. I like the heated seats feature. Having the option to adjust vents in the front and back is a great option..In the way back being able to fold the seats down multiple ways is very helpful and convenient also.

- Michelle L

Safety and comfort in the explorer limited.

I love the features such as automatic high beams, automatic wipers, push button liftgate, heated, air condition and massaging seats, heated steering wheel. Back seats are heated also which is nice. Very comfortable to drive long distance and roomy.

- Tina K

Best car I have owned out of 5.

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

This is the first car I have not thought of trading in and I have owned many cars. There is tons of cargo space and the third row has plenty of room. The limited version has very nice features including second row heated seats. It drives very smoothly. I like the regular ac plug it has also.

- Elise P

I love my ford explorer and when it is time to replace it I will buy a new one.

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

My SUV is great! I love third row seating and the fact there is lots of room. I do wish. However, that automakers would provide a space for women's purses. I usually keep in passenger seat, however when that seat is occupied, I must place my purse in rear seat, which is not convenient.

- Lynda H

2016 Ford Expedition details

2016 Ford Explorer Limited

The only problems I have had with my car is a carbon monoxide recall. It also has some sort of issue with its locking system. It will be locked but will still open while it is locked and the alarm will go off. I still don't understand why the car will open even when it is locked.

- Macy Y
