I am still thrilled with mine nearly 5 months later!! Had a few issues with MyFordTouch.. it "performed maintenance" while driving and now my ambient lighting doesn't work anymore.. annoying.. but still love it!! I'll get it taken care of when I get the recall done!

The Explorer, while looking similar on paper, has far less real world legroom. These comparisons were made over the last week with the 2 vehicles side by side.
My wife and I have owned four Nissan Murano's since they first came out. We have put well over 100k on each with very minimal repairs. We wanted to look at something different and drove a Ford Ex. Very nice, but NO legroom in the second or even 3rd row. We have been looking and testing for months and drove Acadia, 4runner, Murano and Venza. Then we drove a Flex. No comparo in our opinion on legroom, comfort, quiet, hauling capacity etc... We finally pulled the trigger and we have no regrets. It is sweeet. However, we are getting used to the tranny shifting, which is very smooth, but are used to the CVT of the Murano. I would recommend test driving this vehicle and compare to the rest.

In order to lose something, you had to have in the first place. Right??
