I own two Explorers. The 96 (used) I loved and subsequently bought used 04. So far on the 04 I have had to relace the hood (pitted and rusting); Tranmission problem corrected under recall; Differential and air conditioning just after warranty expired even though the problems were showing before but problems could not be found? I will likely buy Honda or Toyota next purchase
As a older mature person I love the size and height of the Explorers. Easy to get in and out of.
