2005 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

A year ago I traded in a Toyota Camry for a Ford Explorer, a mistake I will not soon forget. Explorer was fine for about 6 months. Since then, I've had a check engine light, ABS light, and Battery Light come on all the time. Dealership has "fixed" the issue twice. Also, there is a noise and vibration coming from under the driver's seat and the dealer cannot figure it out. The leather Ford used in the XLT model is awful - I have cracks everywhere. Also, my wife has a Buick Rainier V8 suv and she gets better gas mileage than I do in a V6...go figure? I will never buy another Ford product, nor do I recommend them to anyone.

Favorite Features

Reverse sensing system.

Suggested Improvements

Overall build quality needs to improve....you get what you pay for though, as there is a reason that a Toyota 4Runner costs $7,000 more.
