Happy but with issues
By Bob White on
Vehicle
2003 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
A fine, tight, smooth running vehicle. Unfortunately the rear-end is so weak it was whining at 8000 miles and needing replacement. The transmission started shifting improperly at 25000 miles. I don't believe a vehicle should need a new rear-end and transmission so early. I have a Toyota with 325000 miles and it is running better than my explorer. I love my explorer but very unhappy with the mechanical bills, over $4000 within 175000 miles. Other gripes include new brake pads yearly, electric window that has not worked since new, door ajar light on most of the time, and ABS sensors failing.
Suggested Improvements
better transmission, brakes, and rear- end.
