2005 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought my 2005 Explorer XLT in 2006 with 18K miles on it. My wife drives it for the most part and only has 76K in Jan 2014; it is and has been the PERFECT vehicle. A Utah to Texas trip once a year and normal driving in the city. Prior to reading some of the horror stories below I slept well at night but I will toss and turn tonight. I bought it expecting similar reliability as I did with my '93 F-150 which gave me 225K miles before I sold it but will now look over my shoulder. I do maintain it religiously though, hopefully that explains my experience I can only hope.

Best Features

Perfect except for lack of USB or MP3 interface which was not available in 2005.

Worst Features

None. (maybe 200K miles with same results)
