Probably and 3rd MY (2013) Explorer would be the one to get, hopefully all the bugs have been worked out by then. I really like the new style!salguod said:That really stinks that you've had so many issues and that they showed up after the lemon law protection had expired.
The new Explorer shares nothing with the old. The old was a traditional body on frame SUV. The frame had more in common with the Ranger than anything else (although it had evolved quite a bit from the Ranger). The new is a unit body, much like the Lambdas, and is similar to the Flex and the old Freestyle/Taurus X under the skin. It's really 'all new' with the exception of engines and the name.
