2003 Ford Explorer Sport XLS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Within the first year, due to or
because of the poor quality parts, the
interior back seats began
rattling/shaking;the back seats a very
rarely used. The console rattles and
shakes. At 40,000 miles and a year
later, I now experience major
transmission problems. The automatic
transmission doesn't shift smoothly
from first to second gear. Within 15
minutes the more exaggerated and
predominant the shift, eventually
throwing the vehicle out of overdrive
on its own.
