Not only to I agree with the above
review citing TRANSMISSION problems,
but I was recently informed that after
about 100,000 miles the head has a
tentancy to crack due to poor
manufacturing. Repairs for this are
over $3000, and this was on top of a
transmission problem last year and a
fuel injection probelm costing over
$400 the year before. I rated the
confort as fair, that is, when the
seat was not falling backward due to a
broken screw so far within the seat,
it woudl need to be replaced to fix
the problem. If you're thinking of
buying an Explorer, any year, please
look at a Pathfinder or a Toyota.
Four wheel drive when the "Exploder"
running, it'll plow through any snow,
mud, whatever... I do like the trunk
space, I could haul anything, and
overall appearance is nice.
Recall, recall, recall. Please Ford,
start being honest and stand behind
