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


Review

I bought my peace of junk in January.
I always had Honda's my whole life.
My last Honda lasted 1991-2004 with
one problem with it after it's first
120,000 miles. I had 202,000 miles on
my Honda when it died. This Ford
handles terrobly. Get a Honda or a
Toyota not a Ford or a Chrysler.


Best Features

AWD


Worst Features

turning raduis, terribole gas milllige, brakes, price should be $18,000-$23,000.

2004 Ford Explorer SUV Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Review

At 5500 miles, I had my automatic
trans replaced and the vehicle still
does not run correct. Person Ford
continues to tell me that it shifts
rough because it is a computer aided
trans. Ford has not stood behind their
product and I have taken Ford off my
list of future vehicles!


Worst Features

Over haul

Review

I have just bought the Ford Explorer
and it is a great vehicle. I was
considering a GMC Envoy but he price is
too high and the interior and safty
features are just not as good.


Best Features

Review

This is my first Explorer and I love
it. Driving is a whole new
experience. The vehicle is very
comfortable and all the controls are
easy to get to. The DVD system is
designed great and my kids love the
wireless headphones and remote. I
usually trade vehicles quite often but
I will have this one a LONG time!


Best Features

Heated seats, power moonroof, adjustable pedals, driver 1 and 2 setup, DOOR KEYPAD!


Worst Features

Ability to adjust middle row seats forward and back. Auto up on driver window. Change location of cupholders in middle row.
