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


As long as I was not putting too many miles on my Ford, it seemed like a decent vehicle. Now that I have been driving regularly the past six months major problems have occured. First the seat started rocking back and forth, then the transmission started slipping between 2nd and 3rd,now the real winner, the serpentine belt pulley on the harmonic balancer has separated and the belt coming off. Apparently all inherent problems with this vehicle from what I read on the internet.Dealer wants two arms and a leg to fix. Next car; anything but a Ford, GM or Chrysler.

Best Features

Does not run, but it looks good doing it, not too mention I'm still paying.

Worst Features

Ford should try more customer service then lip service.
