2005 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Well gas mileage stinks I only get 13- 14mpg. Could have bought at Expedition they do better. This vehicle has been reliable and I like it except for the transmission it stinks. It shifts hard,it feels like it trips, or doesnt know what to do. When slowing down it clunks into a lower gear. Supposedly though dealer says its fine. So put aside tranny and bad mpg Im pleased.

Best Features

Advancetrac,stereo,feeling of security,third row and rear air

Worst Features

Explorers are known for bad trannys ford needs to work on this.Hard to but American when Japan builds way better.
