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

Review

Purchased the car in 2005 with 30k on it. The truck operated fine until I hit 125,000 miles. at 125, the transmission went out and I had to put a new one in. at 135k, the timing belt went out. I guess the way they designed the belts, they have to pull the engine out of the truck to replace them, so we're talking approx 3,000 to replace the belt. The tow truck guy and the mecanic both said that whoever designed these was an idiot. lovely.

Favorite Features

space, reliability up to 125,000 miles. big enough for a tall person.

Suggested Improvements

redesign the timing belt
