2004 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased this vehicle as a work vehicle. It had minor problems until I hit 35,000 miles. It took Ford 3 tries to get a working rear end which lasted only another 30,000 miles. A number of idiot lights went bad, and now paint is peeling off the roof and the rear end is again making noise. This was my first and last Big 3 auto purchase.
Ford needs to step up to the plate for problems with these vehicles. 36K warranty is not acceptable for the problems this vehicle has.
