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

Review

When I first got this vehicle, I really liked it. After 8 years and 85,000 miles, I am ready to move on. Too many small problems like the visors that keep breaking, the cracked plastic on the back hatch, and a couple expensive repairs that should not have been necessary. I take good care of my vehicles and do all the maintenance. It's just some poor build quality starting to show through. Almost every 2004 Explorer has had these same problems and Ford will not acknowledge them nor address them. It's too bad because other than these annoyances it really is a nice vehicle.

Best Features

Very smooth ride. Versatile and capable.

Worst Features

Recall the plastic visor clips and fix the rear hatches.
