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


After owning mostly Honda and Chevy vechicles, I thought I would try a Ford Explorer since I liked the look of them. Bad choice on my part. What a hunk of junk. The transmission went at 17k, rear differential needed repair at 25K. Too many things to list here. Its sold now, and I bought a Honda Pilot. All my Hondas (a 95 Civic, 2000 Accord, 2004 Civic) have been worth every penny. This Explorer I was almost willing to pay someone to take. Don't settle for this kind of quality people. There are better vehicles out there, and Ford doesn't make them!
