2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I only have one complaint about my explorer. One day for no apparant reason my back hatch CRACKED! LITERALLY. If you look at an 03 explorer the hatch is 2 pieces. Under the window on the top piece there is a composite piece that now has 2 huge cracks in it. The dealership says they see it all the time but can't fix it because there is no recall. I have googled it and there are way tomany people with this problm. My concern is If water gets down through the crack it could very well rust the latching mechanism and make it fail to work properly and I have a 1 yr old and 3 yr old in the back seat.
I love my vehicle! The added features are AWESOME! The 6 disc changer,sunroof, rear heat/ac, leather interior, 3rd row seating and wonderful.
A vehicle should not get a crack in the body for no reason.
