Most Reliable vehicle I've ever had!!
By jimmyz26 on


2003 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I've owned a Nissan, Mitsibushi, and a Pontiac, and have to say Ford is best vehicle I've had yet!
I've had far less issues with my Ford Explorer and love driving it.
I bought it in 2006 and put 37K miles on it.
It currently has about 75K miles and only had routine maintenance on it.
My only complaint is the crappy gas mileage 15mpg.

The rear panel recently cracked, but you can avoid this.
I had sprayed winshield washer fluid on it during a very cold Colorado winter day.
The repair is outrageous, close to $700.

The handling is excellent and the ride roomy and comfortable.
Well built inside and out. Engine has plenty of power and 4WD is nice. I plan on keeping my Ford for a while.

Best Features

Lots of room. Comfortable ride. Great handling. Engine runs smoothly and has plenty of power. Running boards and fog lights are nice to have. 4WD is great in snowy conditions.
