Purchased As New
Just purchased a 2013 charcoal gray Ford Explorer XLT 2 weekends ago from Frontier Ford (Santa Clara, CA) and I'm completely in love. Got a great deal from Frontier ($7,000 off MSRP) plus I had a trade-in. It couldn't have been a better purchase, and the car is unreal. First off, the driver/passenger seats are very comfortable, and the light tan leather is soft to the touch. The 2nd row has plenty of leg room and seats are very comfortable. My father (who's 6'1") reported plenty of room and comfort during a ride from the 2nd row. Although the 3rd row is a bit tight (and realistically is only set-up for kids) works great for our 2 and 4 year old boys complete with car/booster seats. The 3rd row headrests are a bit large however, and present a bit of a challenge by reducing rear view mirror vision. The SUV rides smooth on city streets and on the freeway, and seems to handle incredibly well when cornering considering its larger size. The MyFord Touch and SYNC features are absolutely awesome, although if you're not tech-savvy you'll need some assistance with a few useful things (ie: voice commands, using the USB thumb drive/SD card reader, etc...). Steering wheel controls are great, and cup-holder/storage is convenient. Only con from me would be the gas mileage, but if you're able to afford a $30,000 car in the first place, the cost of gasoline is most likely not of great concern especially since its not much worse than other vehicles in its class.
