2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is the worst car I have ever owned it is dangerous, expensive & unreliable. It started with fractured paint (over the whole car. I was told by Licardi Ford, where it was purchased, that I had the car repainted; not true!),the small back hatch exploding in my face, I then went on to replace: bad brakes,dropped transmission, broken front axle, broken rear axle, electrical system twice,the doors periodically go out of alignment & not close properly, and, when it rains, it rains in the car. Theres more but why continue; this is bad enough.

Best Features

The radio; at least it works!

Worst Features

Make it a functional automobile that goes at least a month or two without breaking down. Make it safe so people can be comfortable with their children in the car. Make the air conditioning cool the whole car and change the third row seat to be a lot more comfortable. Its awful!
