This is the third explorer that I have owned. I currently has some minor issues that will be fixed when can get it back in for service but love it overall.

Love my new midsize SUV

This car met all my expectations. I test drove it and knew I wanted it. Moving from a car to a midsized SUV is amazing.

This vehicle has been outstanding .
