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

Review

I purchased this vehicle three years ago, with only 30,000 miles. I had to replace the brakes/rotors all around, shortly after purchasing, all four wheel July, and I just found out that I needed all of these items replaced again. This thing had 17" wheels, and I had to replace them every 10 months. The transmission had a whine in it, there was a clicking noise and a really loud roaring sound in the front, drivers side. The cruise control didn't work. It would frequently take spells of not starting. It would grind really fast, like it had been flooded, and I would just have to sit and wait for it to start. It was quite roomy, but it was hard on gas and tires, and very expensive to fix.

Best Features

The room, comfortable to ride in and drive. The power seats, windows. I loved that the gas pedal would move up and down, as I am only 5'3".

Worst Features

Improve the transmissions, and what ever makes it wear the tires and wheel bearings out.
