Although I just traded my 2011 Explorer, I was very impressed with the comfort and mileage.
In the worst snow storm I have ever driven in, couldn't see anything for about 45 minutes, it never slipped up once.
It was in normal AWD the whole time because I forgot it had the terrain settings.

I work from home so my 2 year old 2011 Explorer has only 14,000 miles on it. I recently started noticing a metallic pop/click whenever I shift into reverse, sometimes into drive as well. The heavier the load on the engine, as in backing uphill makes the noise a little louder. Sounds like something flexing when the engine torques back and forth. Took it to the dealer today and of course I could barely get it to make the noise there, but the guy did here a slight click. I'm thinking the noise may be where the exhaust header meets the exhaust pipe as there is usually a flexible connection there to allow for engine rotation in FWD vehicles. We'll see what they come up with....
