Wheel bearing nightmare
By Paul Becker on
Vehicle
2002 Ford Explorer XLS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Review
It's obvious now that Ford has a real problem with the wheel bearings on the Explorer. Today, I am having the 4th wheel bearing replacement on my Explorer. Right rear (once) Left rear (twice) and today, Left front (once). It seems inevitable that the next to go is the Right front. What a complete pain and drain on the wallet with each replacement costing $400. Other issues include body hardware and a way underpowered engine.
Favorite Features
The design of the Explorer is nice and I do like the utility of a SUV.
Suggested Improvements
Ford - Do whatever it is you need to do to produce a reliable, quality vehicle. My wife's 03 explorer has all sorts of electrical problems. Mine is a mechanical mess. I don't know if I will ever by a Ford again. As sad as it is, the domestic car options are limited. Why can't we build good cars?
