2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I am the original owner and bought in March 2000. Only has 60,000 and had to rebuild transmission at 50,000. The key lock does not always unlock tailgate. Had the hood and top repainted (at Ford Dealer) three times due to acid rain (poor paint). My other cars not had the problem. Has many squeaks and noises. I have vehicle cleaned and waxed regularly and the back bumper is rusted. I would not buy a Ford again.
Standard power train warrantee should be mileage only for those of us who have low yearly mileage.
