Vehicle

2000 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Started with 4 thousand miles with a noise like a dry speedometer cable that took multiple trips to resolve. During year 4 with around 65K miles I had Transmission issues, intake gasket sucking air, plastic arm rest, and the top problem was replacing front drive bearings, rear axle bearings, front drive all in a failed attempt to get rid of a noise so load even the transmission mechanic thought I should be more worried about it. So for the past 50 thousand miles I have be waiting to see wait is going to fail off so I can repair it.

Best Features

Size, look, and the V6 get 21 mpg hwy

Worst Features

This follows bad experience with Windstar and I am not going to pay Ford to have that 3rd strike. Save your money and purchase a Honda or Toyota even used if you need to but stay away from Ford.
