Review
I have owned my 2005 Exploder for 2 years. Yeah I said Exploder, because that's what the transmission did. At 39,304 miles and only 5 years old my transmission went belly up. I used to think that these poor reviews were concocted by GM dealers hoping to ruin Fords credibility.Now I have first hand experience with my own transmission nightmare. Stay away from these vehicles. I wasted my time and money babying this vehicle and maintaining all recommended services, because Ford didn't give a diddly squat about my premature transmission failure. By the way there is no dipstick to check transmission fluid levels. Apparently Ford thinks they are bullet proof. HA HA HA HA !
Favorite Features
Unloading my wallet for repairs. I love stepping on the scale after I fork over 2G's for repairs. I feel like the biggest loser. Oh wait I am, I own an Exploder.
Suggested Improvements
Include a reliable vehicle with the purchase of this one.
