Too many problems to list, buy anything else!
By jimbo28max on


2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


I am sure that any positive review is from a Ford dealer or someone who has an interest in selling one. Because this car is probably the biggest pile of junk ever built.
The biggest problem is that the dealer cant even fix them. I am on my third transmission. If you look online you will see that they all have the same known problem.
I get a random check engine light that comes back as "bad shift solenoids". Dealer changer shift solenoids .
and it was not the problem. Shifting problem misteriously went away for 1 yr and is now back.

In true FORD fashion nerf bars rusted and literally fell off of the car, EGR rusted through and caused all kinds of problems, bad mass airflow sensor, etc

Best Features

There is nothing good to say about this piece of junk.

Worst Features

Learn something from Toyota. I have the same same year Toyota with twice as many mile and it is mint compared to the Ford. It hasn't had one problem. All original components at 250,000 miles.
