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

Review

Previously owned ford explorer earlier year. Did not have any signifcant issues for the most part. This model major transmission problems. Not built to last more than 100,000 mi. heard clicking noise dealer could not find problem. paint on roof and hood is chipping off. Poor paint job Dealer rebuilt front bearings at 30,000mi Transmission now has to be replaced. Transmission, bearings and transfer case poor quality. Ford should recall this vehicle I wish I had read the reviews on this vehicle

Favorite Features

Engine is relatively reliable starts

Suggested Improvements

Transmission should last longer Bearing going under normal driving conditions. Not even off roading Paint qality on front of hood and roof
