Although my Explorer has had minor
powertrain repairs, they occurred
during the 6y/75K extended warranty.
My other complaint is the driver's
side seat recliner lever which was
placed in a terrible location. It has
broken off since every time you exit
the vehicle, you hit the lever with
your left leg. Other than the lever, I
love my Explorer because it still does
a lot of things well.
Ability to drive 90mph comfortably for
hours, turn onto snow covered 2-lane
with the shift-on-the-fly 4x4, and
have plenty of room inside.
