At this current time my Ford 2006 Explorer XLS is at the service department at the purchase dealership. This time it was returned for the recall on and having too heavily accelerate when in reverse and especially in drive. They think it maybe an engine or transmission problem at (108000 miles). The joke is the transmission is sealed and must be returned to the service department for servicing and of course money. Also, the radiator has been replaced twice. I am very afraid to maintain this vehicle due to the current and previous mechanical problems. This vehicle is American Made but its a heap of joke and I wonder was it assembled on Monday or Friday.
At this point I hate this vehicle and have nothing positive to say.
Better warranty for engine and transmission. The able to check the transmission fluid with an dip stick.
