2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Just returned from a trip and the O/D light started flashing. All recommendations from Ford service and independents state that a transmission change is required. Very expensive since happened at 106,000 miles. This is on top of just replacing the rear differential bearings,and wheel bearings that Ford service said were bad. All this after the extended warranty was up. The rear differential fix was done 18 months prior the first time while under warranty. Far too many problems with this drive train.
Interior and exterior appearance is very good. Has been comfortable to ride.
