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

Review

I fell in love with the "look" of the explorer xlt, and had always heard that Ford built a good vehicle. Everything started out great. But, around 70,000 miles that all started to change. I have replaced 6 wheel bearings, rebuilt the transmission, changed window switch, the interior lights works only when they want too, heat doesn't work anymore, volume knob is broken, clicking noise coming from dash, 4x4 doesn't work, trim started fading to quick, leather seats don't hold up, rear passenger door won't lock and after all this the transmission is going out again. Don't waset your money on what is now known as the Ford exploder.

Favorite Features

Looks good sitting in my driveway.

Suggested Improvements

Only build quality products or, don't put it out there for consumers to spend there hard earned money on.
