2005 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought the explorer with 60k on it. Had it for 6 months. Loved it at first, until I came back from a long weekend. I went to start my explorer and it didn't start. Finally after about an hour of trying, it started and I had three different dummy lights on. Low oil pressure, 4X4 light, check engine light. Brought it to a mechanic, cost me $350 to fix and even after it was fixed the truck still shook like I was in four wheel drive. Brought it back to the mechanic who couldn't find anything wrong with it. Certainly not my most reliable vehicle. Traded it after only 6 months for a Toyota... Best thing I ever did!
Third row seat.
I simply just wish it had been more reliable. I drive A LOT and I need something that WON'T leave me stranded.
