2002 Ford Explorer XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I bought this slightly used with only 14k miles. Nice looking truck inside and out. But after only owning it a year, everything started going wrong. Interior lights shorted out and so did the mirror ext. lights. Coil spring went. Mechanic said it was a design flaw that fords knew about it. Wheel bearings all the way around at 40k miles. Power window problems at 50k. Then at 80, rear diff. and trans went so we got rid of it. It was a money pit. It still rode nice the day we got rid of it but too many repairs. My last Ford explorer purchase.

Favorite Features

ride, roomy

Suggested Improvements

better over all design with bad coil springs and wheel bearings.
