I purchased my Ford Explorer brand new and it had at least 5 recalls. The most significant would be the tires. I had very serious engine problems and Ford had to replace my engine twice.

Very good vehicle. No significant problems. It rides solid, but bumps are felt. Reliable and no rattles. Good power (V-6), no problems on hills. Good mileage on the road (20-25) and about 16 in town.
