Transmission beyond hope
By fdfinance on
2006 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought the Explorer new and had a thermostat failure that blew coolant all over the engine warping engine parts resulting in $2500 repair.
At 70,000 miles started having transmission issues starting with slipping and high revs between gears.
Transmission locked up and was replaced.
Since then the same slipping issues has caused multiple returns to the shop without resolution.
My wife and I like the Explorer design but the engine / transmissions issues make it a nightmare that I would not wish on anyone.
This is my last Ford.
