2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this vehicle used 3 years ago.
Currently has 115,000 miles on it.
two years ago, rear differential started to whine (very common problem on this vehicle).
I was told by several sources that the rear will last anywhere from 1,ooo to 1o,ooo miles and will cost a few grand to replace.
Two windows died during the past winter (one was the motor, the other was the track).
This vehicle will coat alot to maintain.
If you can get over the rear differential problem, it is a good vehicle that will get you anywhere (I have taken it off road a few times, and the snow & ice of PA has never stopped me).
Also, the little problems seem to add up alot!
It's power and 4x4 performance.
Very comfortable inside with lots of space!
