Loved it, but hated transmission
By Tibbels30 on


1991 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Bought it used Oct 4,2001. Broke down
December 24th (lovely christmas
present) 2001. The transmission went
out. Come to find out the dealership
put a used transmission in it in
September. We made them put in another
transmission (used again) around the
end of Jan 2002 and it also went out in
about 120 days (after the 100 day
warrenty expired) Now it sits and the
finance company doesn't even want it
back!! I was told that transmissions in
Explorers go out all the time,
exspecially before the put in the newer
ones in 1994. Do I dare buy another?? I
cant deciede. Good luck to anyone who
buys under 1995.

Best Features

Comfortable and 4WD button that switches from 2WD to 4WD.

Worst Features

I think that Ford should replace any bad trannie in these Explorers. They should have been recalled!!
