2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Experienced many of the quality issues others are describing around the radiator and transmission.
All under 75k and only 5 years old.
Recently traded it in and do not regret it.
Fun to drive but way too expensive to keep on the road long term.
I experienced the sam problem.
I purchased my 2006 explorer eddie bauer brand new.
Three years later my transmission started slipping.
I took it to Doug Stanley Ford and one of the service men drove it while I was still in the car and he had the nerve to tell me that it was supposed to do that.
I told him that it just started to do that I was still under warrenty.
3 months later it started doing it more often buy this time my warrany has expired.
I had to come out of pocket and replace it 4,900.
I was so dissappointed.
My 2000 Ford Taurus is still running good the only thing I had to replace was the fuel pump. NO MORE FORDS for me.
