2004 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

At 5500 miles, I had my automatic trans replaced and the vehicle still does not run correct. Person Ford continues to tell me that it shifts rough because it is a computer aided trans. Ford has not stood behind their product and I have taken Ford off my list of future vehicles!


Worst Features

Over haul

2004 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer AWD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is my first Explorer and I love it. Driving is a whole new experience. The vehicle is very comfortable and all the controls are easy to get to. The DVD system is designed great and my kids love the wireless headphones and remote. I usually trade vehicles quite often but I will have this one a LONG time!


Best Features

Heated seats, power moonroof, adjustable pedals, driver 1 and 2 setup, DOOR KEYPAD!


Worst Features

Ability to adjust middle row seats forward and back. Auto up on driver window. Change location of cupholders in middle row.
