2003 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought this car new for my wife, she loved it! Year 1 had to replace the brakes, $200 JUST for the rear pads no labor(repeat annually). Year 2, air bag sensor broke - 'fixed' 5 times still broken. Year 3-4, transmission went at 55000 miles, just past warranty $3000, front wheel bearing went $600, CD player jams can't use it anymore. Year 6, front wheel bearing gone again and just replaced the battery a second time. If my other car were paid off, I'd buy a honda or toyota today.
