Great until it hit 100k miles!
By chase2634 on


2002 Ford Explorer XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Bought mine used in 2004 with around 30k miles. Aside from general maintenance this vehicle was great until it 100k miles.
Wheel bearings, cracked rear panel out of the blue due to design flaw and now at 150k miles the transmission is on the way out.
Just got the dreaded blinking over drive light and found out my new trans will cost about 2k.

Best Features

4wd when it works
