2003 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)

Review

This is the first Ford product I have owned and it has changed my opinion of Ford. I have owned this SUV for about 5 years and have found it to be very reliable. I have done mainly routine maintanence. Of course the hatch plactic/glass is cracked like all other '03s. I have not had any transmission problems. I have replace a couple of wheel bearings. But, I now have 225,000 K on the car. It doesn't burn a drop of oil and goes through any amount of snow. I would highly recommend this make/model/year/engine.

Favorite Features

Comfort, heated seats, towing ability, and nothing stops it. Interior still looks like new.

Suggested Improvements

Rear tailgate should be recalled. Engine light often comes on when nothing is wrong. Wiper springs could be stronger.
