2004 Ford Explorer Limited AWD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is my third Explorer and my last. My 2000 has been the best of the 3 2000 03 &04, All 3 had the transmission rebuild, but only the 2000 has had nothing else repaired. Everything works as well as new over 205,000 miles on it now. The engines have never been a problem until now. We now have electical and rear end noise now. The 2000 pulled trailers boats and what you could get on the bumper with no effort. I wish they would bring back sun visor recorder. Also the 2nd sun visor. But I am looking at Highlanders now. 3600 for a new transmission had me looking for a different manufacturer. P.S. we did change trasmission fuild every fluid at 30,000 at the dealer no less.

Best Features

heated mirrors, sef dimming mirror. The ability to go off road at a moments notice. Great clearence

Worst Features

better seat belt retractors always getting stuck in door. transmission needs attention
