    Just got back from Oil Change and found oil on floor

    Oh wow. I'm about to drop off my Ex to the same dealer for the 7500 mile maintenance in the morning. Now I'm thinking twice.

    IAMA New Explorer Owner... Ask Away

    I remember I filled up in far north Dallas, reset the monitor, and drove to south Fort Worth(all highway) and I was pinging 29mpg. I was really impressed.

    IAMA New Explorer Owner... Ask Away

    I'm a EB owner with 1500 miles and my mpg just keep getting better. I'm in Dallas(pretty flat) with a 32 mile commute both ways 3 days a week, with 70% highway, 30% city. Weekends it's 50/50. I'm average 24-26 on my last 2 tanks....26 being the most recent. I'm curious to see what the V6 would...

    Window etching

    I'm picking up my X this afternoon. I purchased the security window etching but considering have them remove it from the purchase price. Is it worth it to get this?

    Did NOT get Factory Tow Package, Now What?

    That setup isn't half bad. I was thinking of a bike rack and wanted to see what it looked like since tie isn't an option in the Eco. So those that have the tow package, is that hitch exposed the whole time or can that opening for all the hookups be covered by a piece?

    Did NOT get Factory Tow Package, Now What?

    I was wanting to do the same. Do you have a photo of your setup?

    Err, should not be a problem.

    Ecoboost thought

    Amen. I'm surprised there is only one "they should've put the 3.5 Eco in this thing" post in here so far. What people tend to forget is that Ford has no doubt spent millions on market research to determine a majority of these X buyers aren't taking it off the pavement, but rather shuttling kids...

    I love all the 4 banger hate.

    Is this a good price?

    Just to get this straight. There is MSRP, invoice, and dealer cost. So truecar is listing dealer cost(no holdback)? And the guy that got $100 over invoice is basically getting X-plan?

    2012 Ecoboost owners

    Thanks for the input. I've seen reviews on the pirellis on the Discount Tire website that they aren't that great. Do you like the ride in the tires? Do you know if we can buy special tires because of the different axle ratio? Sorry, not a mechanic.

    Did your rides come with the pirellis like it states on the pricing sheets?

    Any power issues as far as acceleration? What kind of payload have you had in it?

    What deal should I expect if I ordered a 2012 Explorer

    I was wondering how you negotiated pricing if you ordered under xplan. I ordered under xplan as well and wondered if I got a good deal.

    Equipment Group 204A

    I'm looking at the 2012 pricing sheet from the dealer and 204a will be available, but later in the year. No date is posted.

    On the fence

    Nice, thats what I want to hear. With the 5 people and your tailgating load, how much weight did you think you had in the vehicle at the time?

    2012 ecoboost

    Good to hear you like your Eco purchase. I just ordered mine. How is your fuel economy there in Colorado? How does your Eco X perform when loaded or going up inclines?

    On the fence

    So, on my first visit, I tested the V6 first which involved an uphill onramp merge onto a 70mph highway. Attempted passing situations on the highway and normal roads. I attempted the same maneuvers on the same route with the Eco. The Eco performed very well. It surprised me a little when I had...

    Motor Trend 2012 Eco Boost Explorer review

    I'm not sure if I even had the option to add the tow package on my Eco order.

    On the fence

    Yeah. Snow isn't a prob. I can't take into account snow here since we see it maybe 1-2 a year and it sticks around for 2 days at most. Any other Eco buyers out there on mostly flat terrain that have any power issues?

    Motor Trend 2012 Eco Boost Explorer review

    TIO M...no tow for me. I don't own a boat or jet skis and probably won't in the next 10 years. Didn't feel the slowness on the 3 Eco test drives. Tried passing situations and uphill on ramps, and all were good. At the line, it even jump on me a little. Main purpose of my X order was to get a...

    Motor Trend 2012 Eco Boost Explorer review

    sdmcwilliams, thanks for the post. I just ordered an Eco yesterday and am on the fence still. When you go to pass, do you feel any sluggishness? I didn't feel it on my test drives, but I wanted to hear from an actual owner. I think you're the first Eco owner to post in this forum.

    Thanks Lono. Yeah, I've been looking on the forum for a few weeks. The Eco is so new that I haven't seen much from buyers. And the trash article from MotorTrash didn't help any.

    On the fence

    Thanks calb. I'm excited for my girl to get here. Now, I did the figures for myself before the purchase and it'll take me a little less than 3 years(35 months) to recoup that $900. If(more like when) gas prices go up every year, it will be even less. If you knew my wife, camper won't...

    On the fence

    So I ordered my 2012 Limited X yesterday using X plan. I've done 5 test drives...2 in the V6, 3 on the Eco. I ordered the Eco for the fuel economy. I've never towed anything and don't plan to. Other than a little baby girl that is on the way, I don't plan on loading it with 7 people. I'm just...
