    What do you think?

    Nice! I like the tints, running boards and rear protector! I don't like bug protectors! But your car still looks awesome!

    What do you guys think of this grill color?

    MFT Black / Blank Screen

    I have the most recent update and never had major issues before the update. I actually think my older version was faster than the new update. I will take my car to the dealer tomorrow, hopefully it's just a minor fix!

    My 2012 Ford Explorer Limited with Shark Fin Antenna

    Once again, very nice car! I'm still trying to decide which of those DeeZee boards will look best on a sterling gray metallic. But I've been leaning towards the exact same ones you have. Are those the factory cross bars? Are they pretty quiet?

    2012 Explorer Gas Pedal Vibration 1200-1500RPM

    You are not alone. I have 2011 ford explorer xlt without awd and without tow package. My explorer was built on 04/30/2011. I have the vibration at higher rpms. It's very annoying, I hope Ford can find a way to finally fix this. Any new updates on this issue?

    Highway MPG

    Hey you know what guys, nevermind, I live in the rio grande valley in south texas and there's not a single hill around here for at least 250 miles, so that pretty much sums up the reason why I can get up to 27 mpg.

    Yes, I have the v6 fwd and for whatever reason I can get 25-27 as long as I keep it between 65-70.

    Highway MPG

    I have a 2011 Ford Explorer XLT that I bought 6 months ago and I'm able to consistently achieve 27 MPG as long as I keep my speed between 65-70 on the highway. Anyone else have this experience?

    I'm sick of MotorTrend! I'm hoping so bad that the new update for the MFT system will be freakin amazing, guaranteed everyone will join the Ford bandwagon then.

    On the fence

    Hoy Pinoy! I went with the v6 since this car is our family hauler and will be our primary vehicle for road trips and I thought the smaller engine might be underpowered in certain conditions. Plus we have another vehicle with slightly better mpg that we use to run errands around town. I only...

    2011 Gas Hog

    Before I get into the highway I usually reset my system so I can get an accurate reading and I noticed if I drive between 65-75 MPH, I average 25-27MPG but if I drive between 75-85 MPH, I average between 23-25 MPG. In city driving, the range really varies from 15 - 20 MPG. I have 3000 miles on...
