Two weeks after we bought the Explorer the transmission went out. The transmission man who replaced it said it was the worst transmission Ford ever made. Five months later the trans mission went out again and was replaced under warranty. The transmission just went out again. I'm going to haul it to the Junk yard. The door locks don't work, the seat is broken, the AC doesn't work, cruise control quit and it is running bad now. It isn't worth the trouble to fix it. I always took care of it and never ran it hard so it shouldn't have had these problems.
It performed well in the snow.
Improve the transmission. Locks and seats and trim.
