2004 Ford Explorer SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Purchased @ 83,000 miles. Replaced the crank shaft pulley, now the radiator is leaking. After reading about other problems and shelling out over a grand in my first year of ownership, I am considering selling. Have an 2002 civic I have done nothing to with 130,000 miles


Favorite Features

Rear a/c, roomy, third row


Suggested Improvements

Build a more reliable product.

2004 Ford Explorer SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Fairly solid feel and good amenities. Front seats are not comfortable. Have had transmission problems that have not been repaired after several trips to the dealer. This is my 2nd Explorer and will be my last. Am very disappointed in the early problems that I am having and will get rid of it at 36,000 miles.


Favorite Features

Adjustable pedals and rear sensor.


Suggested Improvements

Engineering - have had nagging transmission problems that are not yet repaired after many trips to the dealer and yesterday the radio became inaudible. After a couple of engine starts and stops, problem disappeared.

Review

I had a 1994 Limited and had absolutely no problems with it....from the top of Pike's Peak to Death Valley and towing two horses through the snow....this car did it all. So why switch? Bought another.

Review

Very comfortable and easy to drive. Doesn't feel like you're driving a SUV other than towering over people.


Favorite Features

Reverse sensor. It's saving me from fighting w/ my wife since the sensor will keep her from backing into things!!!


Suggested Improvements

Gas Tank cover lock.
