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

Review

I have had this SUV for just over 3 years, and in that time it's been in the shop for electrical panel shutdown (3 times!), and is now in for major engine repair - two timing chains busted, only 65000 miles. Of course the warranty is up, and will cost over $3K to fix! When it's back from the shop (four weeks now) I am trading it in for a Toyota, before the tranny goes too!

Best Features

Roominess, takes U-turns awesome, fits our lifestyle

Worst Features

Quality of parts, cooperation from manufacturer to make good on major repairs that shouldnt be needed this early in the game, even if not under warranty.
