Ok except for the transmission

Vehicle
2005 Ford Explorer XLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
We bought our Explorer in 2005 new. It ran great for 36,000 miles. It now has 68,000 miles. The best gas mileage we have gotten is 18 hwy/11 city with a constant average of 14.6. NOT very desirable. No repairs, just regular maintenance for 3 years. Shortly after 36,000 miles we had problems with the reverse: going into reverse and going from reverse into drive. It would take about 3 to 5 seconds for the gears to catch and move the car. After a new transmission everything else started to go wrong. Interesting that until we took it to the dealer we had no other problems! The blinkers work intermittently, the rear windows work sometimes or NOT and the leather is cracking sides/edges.
Favorite Features
The SUV is leather seats are comfortable in back and front. Lots of leg room for me in back, not so much my tall husband. I like the look of the SUV. I like the dash, NO sun reflection!
Suggested Improvements
Better gas mileage! The new HD trucks get better gas mileage! Quality leather. Better made transmission.
