2005 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 5A)


Pretty good vehicle, but Ford refused to work with me on refixing three problems "supposedly" fixed once under warranty. Can't accept this lack of concern for a loyal customer after spending 41k on original purchase. Will just have to shop elsewhere next time. If this is a common practice with other claims, I can see them losing a lot of business.

Best Features

Looks,(extra cost champaign pearl) performance, ride

Worst Features

Fuel mileage. Easier access to inside front door handles(hidden, must lean forward to find). Dispense washer fluid BEFORE wipers make first pass over glass. Steering wheel radio controls...volume and stations up AND down. Power sun roof and driver window one touch, open AND close.
