Excellent family 4x4
I purchased the 2.0 bi turbo titanium used from dealer with about on the clock. Still had the new car smell and was immaculate. Have done a combination of city and 4x4 fire trail driving to test it out. Has not had any issues at all.
I have two children and wanted to take them 4x4 while still having a premium feeling suv for practical city and school trips.
I compared a prado kakadu but it was stupid expensive and had less power, torque and the interior feels outdated and cheap. I also felt that you had to buy a Prado in order to gain 4x4 c...red. But decided to buck the trend and buy something worth the money. Dont buy a 4x4 prado because your friends have one! Do your research. There are other much more capable and value for money 4x4's. Key notes about the everest. Im 6 foot 7 and the seats and space is very good and ideal for long family trips.

I’ve never been a ford person but I must admit this is a very enjoyable car to drive
I have always owned V8 Holden’s and have never liked Fords until a few of my mates started driving ranger’s and Everest’s. Toyota only offered three years warranty at the time and when I was shopping for a new car a mate of mine had just bought an Everest and was very pleased with his purchase after I went for a drive in his car I thought “not bad”.
When I went to the Ford dealership the next day the salesman told me there was a new 2 L model available, I took both the 2 L and 3.2 L for a drive back to back a couple times each and I absolutely ...
Great so far
Bought as a demo car .Just clocked up 15000 kms no problems impressed with the bi turbo motor and the 10 speed auto is very smooth , goes like a scolded cat.Handles dirt roads well as we live on a farm , dust hangs on the back door ,no dust deflector for them ,had a diesel territory before it was a great car .Wife does 30k to 40k kms a year so will see how the Everest lasts.

I love my Everest. Best Car I have ever owned.
Bought my Everest from Brad Garlick Ford Nov 18, big toss up 2.0 v 3.2. Went for the 2.0 Bi Turbo and it performs exactly as promised no complaints and in my opinion a far superior engine
Purchased in November 2018.
5 days old and needed to be towed on day 4.
Took delivery on Thursday last week. Everything fine until Monday when it was like the car went into limp mode as I'm powering out of a T junction. The car stalled half way across the intersection and I had to pull onto the verge on the opposite side of the road as total power gone. If it was a busy intersection I would have been T boned for sure. Towed to the closest Ford dealer. Tried to tell me i might have used the wrong fuel. I have the diesel receipt when i fuelled up. They say they have to pull the whole fuel tank out to see if it's the ...fuel pump or a faulty connection and I'll probably lose a lot of my fuel?? 1400 kms and on a tow truck already. I'm still waiting and it's day 2 at the dealer. No hire car available for them to give me. Had to get an Uber home and had to drive my daughters car today. Is Ford for real?? It's a 2019 2lt 10 speed 4wd everest trend. What have I done? Can't really rate anything as yet because I just bought it!!

Plastic trim faulty
Bought my Everest trend new nearly a year ago and have found the black plastic trim around the bottom of the windscreen turning grey and weathered, back to the dealer to report as a warranty issue, no real help from them Ford hasn't flaged it as quality alert so they can't help me, I was told to raise the issue with Ford directly all good get claim number from them then get a call from a case manager, they told me that the dealer doesn't see it as a issue so neither did they. I think they know they have a problem but they are trying to ignore it to avoid a recall. They should tell you when you pick up your $50k plus car that. Oh by the way your black plastic trim we be grey in year. Lol
Great vehicle for a huge range of uses!
Bought our new MY19 Trend. Decided to go with the 3.2 LT 5 cylinder as the torque rating was better than the 2.0lt 10 speed. Haven't had it long but loving the build and drive quality of the vehicle. Purchase included nudge bar, roof racks and tow bar. Great sound system and all the tech that you need. The only downside is a lack of storage space. Whilst the total volume of storage in the back is huge with the 3rd row seats folded down it would be handy to have a few small compartments to store recovery equipment in etc. Just love the vehicle though!
Great car no faults no rattles. Car is perfect it replaced my 2014 prado the Everest is very refined
Great car no issues.
Heaps better than my 2014 prado a heap more refined. Car has no rattles or issues. Great to drive and tows a 2.7 tonne caravan easily. The high beam is not the best. My kids love the car is very comfortable and great off-road. Totally recommend this car done 15000km so far.

. Ford Everest: 'thump' noise on 5-6 gearshift
I have been encountering a ‘thump’ noise when the automatic transmission shifts from fifth to sixth gear (the 5-6 shift) on my MY18 Everest Trend.
This occurs at speeds of 75-80 km/h.
I asked my Ford dealer to investigate at the recent 3k service but they said they could not find a problem.
The ‘thump’ noise seems to always happen between 75 and 80km/hr in auto mode.
I have since found an article that mentions Ford Australia has an updated transmission calibration
(software upgrade) which fixes this problem.
I have recently had a ...Ford dealer in Nth QLD look at the issue and they applied all outstanding software updates and checked over the transmission and said that they could not find an issue however the problem still remains.
Great Car but with Everest Ambiente penny pinching to have only one remote access flip key.
A great car but just a heads up on anyone buying an Everest Ambiente, be aware it only comes with ONE remote access key (Flip key) with the second key it is a normal key so if you want to lift the tail gate to put something in the back with the second key when it is raining you have to put your key in the Drivers door to open any other door. I found out after I signed and paid for it. As I said it is a great car but for a $50,000 plus car (4x4 model) in this day & age it is penny pinching to have to open doors with a conventional key. If I had ...known before I bought I would have negotiated a proper second key in the deal. We find the car comfortable to drive and it tows our caravan very well. Lots of room inside and though it is the base model there is plenty of technology re voice control for audio and climate control. It has security alarm (motion detector) if someone breaks in. As ours is new I wont post the fuel consumption because it only has 3,000 km on the clock but the way it is going I expect good fuel consumption when it is run in. As diesel is a lubricant they take a little longer than petrol to run in but if you can afford a diesel then that is the way to go because better economy in the long run.
Questions & Answers
Anyone have ride height issues . Mine has over 25mm difference in the rear as viewed from the rear the right side is higher than the left and is very noticeable and local dealer says its within spec but I cannot find any spec for this .
Its an ugly look to the auto and if I had noticed this at purchase I would not have bought it and if its true the over 25mm is an allowable spec from Ford this will be my last Ford.
Researching this issue I am seeing that 13mm is acceptable but should be less.
Any thoughts or anyone know the actual allowable Ford spec?
I purchased this auto and typical dealership of the Philippines are very poor at doing anything and think that I will accept their feedback, but I have just started my quest to get this corrected my auto was assembled in Thailand.
Ford Everest: 'thump' noise on 5-6 gearshift
This relates to the review with the above title. My Everest had a similar issue between 2nd and 3rd when up changing and backing off the throttle. Ford did a number of software updates, but the problem went away after I towed a 2t boat on an 800km return trip. Never happened since, that was on the 50,000kms mark. Anyone have a similar experience?
