Watch out for the transmission
By unhappy Callifornian on

Vehicle

1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

My transmission shop call the truck the "exploder." He loves them, because they bring him so much business. According to this mechanic, Ford used the Falcon transmission with the six, and a better transmission with the 8. My truck is a six. I have had one entire rebuild and a major repair for a cost of approx $3500. The transmission is going into fail safe again. Don't know how much it will cost this time. Truck has 190,000 miles. This works out to a major transmission repair every 65,000 miles. The ventilation system doesn't work properly. The truck will get stuck 4 wheel drive low. It will be a long time before I buy another Ford product.

Favorite Features

Good rear seat room. Comfortable front seats.

Suggested Improvements

Better drive train.
