Well I've been active over on the 6.0 board so I thought since I bought my wife a new 2012 Base Explorer I would pop over here. It's nothing too fancy but is loaded pretty good for a base model! Has sync and Sirius radio etc. don't care for the steel wheels but can change them out when these tires wear out. Just put mud flaps on and a bug shield. I live in the country so that's a necessity. Overall I'm impressed with it! We had a 2009 Flex we traded in. This is much nicer vehicle.
