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


We bought the vehicle and were unable to even leave the dealership. It died right there. The dealership replaced the complete fuel system at Ford's advice which seemed to take care of the problem. Now at 8000 miles, the rear end is shot as well as transmission problems and axle bearing problems. The vehicle is beautiful and rids very nicely ... when it runs.

Best Features

Body design and interior are great. Very good leather work.

Worst Features

Fix the rear end on these, I have seen 7 other '05s in for service with rear end problems.
