2004 Ford Explorer XLS Sport Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


The upper part of the tailgate cracked by itself. It cost $350 to get it replaced. The service guy said this happened quite often. Hope Ford will improve body build quality. Please don't change the exterior look. Everybody loves the outside look, but each complains about the gas mileage and minor body problems. I'd like to buy a new Explorer but am waiting for good news about the body build quality and better gas mileage. Is Ford considering a hybrid version?

Best Features

Ride, exterior look, power, cargo space.

Poor quality of tailgate construction. Gas mileage.
