2018 Ford Explorer Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Ford Explorer
Title: 2018 Ford Explorer is great for families!
I love the fact that my Explorer is highly up to date with technology and I am able to access my iPhone though the Explorer computer system. I can pull up maps, and listen to iTunes hands free. The third row seating is wonderful since we just had a baby and all 4 kids can ride comfortably, and we are still capable to put bags and a stroller in the back. We did not go with the leather seats, and I do not mind- the upholstery is easy to clean. . . Although I would have preferred the leather in the long run. The only complaint I have would be all the additional options such as a sunroof or heated seats were in the higher packages. I would have loved to have had heated seats on all the options.
Great for the traveler or the soccer mom.
Size is great for a 4 person family, we do a lot of traveling and even with two car seats have plenty of space for luggage and passengers. Leather heated seats and steering wheel is great for the cool months of the upper Midwest winters, and easy to clean and care for. The gas mileage is about average for the size of the vehicle and engine. The front seats are multi positional and makes for a really comfortable drive. Navigation is included for the life of the vehicle which is wonderful when you do not have unlimited data to use a phone GPS, and includes easy navigation tools and shortcuts, my favorite especially when traveling is the nearest gas stations with price compare.
We own a beautiful Ford Explorer.
My Ford Explorer is fully decked out for comfort and technically. It has heated seats and cool seats. It even has a heated steering wheel. It has duel controls for each. It has all the comfortable anyone would want for traveling. It has ambient lighting, which is awesome. It has a beautiful leather interior. We have three rows of seats and the middle seat are buckets. That is very handy with the grandkids. It has lots of safety features, which makes it a very safe vehicle. It has a wonderful, easy to use GPS system. We can also use our Alexis in our truck. We have owned several ford's and honestly wouldn't drive anything else. It is a very nice looking SUV. We love it.
The Ford Explorer is the perfect car for a family on the go!
I really love my Ford Explorer. Previously, I had a Ford escape. I knew I wanted to stay with the Ford company but chose the Explorer to have more room for my family. I love captains chairs in the middle row of my vehicle. It makes getting my two young children in and out very easy. I also love the third row which allows me to transport family and friends. I can also adjust the back seats to make transporting my dogs more convenient. I love the touch screen in my Explorer. I use it to run Spotify and maps everyday. In the cold winters, I also use my heated steering wheel and seats daily. I have not had any issues since purchasing my vehicle.
Easy to drive long distances, comfortable, safety ratings, fuel economy.
I have the Ford Explorer sport edition with leather interior, dual moon roofs, heated seats and steering wheel (have never had that before so it excites me), backup cam, and third row. The seats are the most comfortable I have ever sat on hands down, it drives like a speed car, and gas mileage is pretty good as well! My only complaint is the accessibility of the third row if you have a car seat in the middle of the second row. I am sure I could move it over and that would be easily fixed though. Great car. . . I leased this and plan to buy!
The 2018 Ford Explorer is a very dependable vehicle.
We chose this vehicle base on the safety features and the room. I am a mother of 3 and this is the 2nd Ford I have owned. The third row seating makes it so comfortable to carry all of us. Front and rear incident monitors are huge plus as far as safety concerns go. Excellent tire traction. Heated and cooled seat with heater stirring as well. Sony sound system, dual sunroofs, sport package appearance. Led lighting, tons of cup holders which is a plus. Six month free Sirius radio package. Wi-Fi features, temp control, GPS, back up camera,
Excellent performance SUV.
I have the 2018 Ford Explorer sport 209a model. This is a top of the line sport performance SUV. This has a v6, with 250 horsepower and turbo, if needed. This has all the bells and whistles and beets out the platinum edition. The handling is right on, goes when you need it to. I have averaged 23 mpg and fill the tank about every week. This car looks sharp, classy and sporty. The seats, all leather are heated & have ac. Full roof panel moonroof. I cannot say enough about this SUV. I absolutely love it.
Highly recommend and would purchase again!
The Ford Explorer is a great family vehicle! Its user friendly and with advanced technology. It can fit my husband, 2 kids, and large dog very comfortably. We have owned the vehicle for 11 months and have not experienced any problems. We get 22 mpg. The leather heated seats are easy to maintain and the rear view backup camera give me the extra comfort in driving. We also have the automatic start which is great in the colder months with kids, leaving work, etc.!
Eventually it's going be the reason you will be rear ended and possibly killed. There is no recall but lots of identical complaints online.
I had an Escape before and loved the size. The Explorer is too much like a truck for me. I have complained to the dealership about the vehicle losing acceleration sometimes while driving. I have chosen to stay off the expressway since I have come terribly close to being rear ended by semi's when the acceleration slowly drops to 0 without warning or reason. I am so very sorry I have it for a 3 year lease. I am thankful I didn't buy it outright.
Explorer takes the family exploring in style.
The Explorer is an excellent vehicle. The vehicle is roomy, accommodates our family on trips and around town. The back up camera is a life saver in tight spaces with the back up sensors. The few negatives items are the gas tank size, a bit on the small size. Mix the small gas tank and the lower miles per gallon and it feels like you have to fill up quite frequently. Overall I have enjoyed the vehicle and the positives far outweigh the negatives.
