Won't have another one...

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


Overall, the vehicle has been pretty reliable, but the transmission has been horrible from the get-go. It kicks real hard when going into reverse and response time is super slow at all times. Rear windows stick at times. A crack suddenly appeared next to the ford logo on the back. Have since noticed several other explorers with the same crack. This was my first new vehicle and has not left me with a good impression of American vehicles.

Best Features

Roomy, comfortable, good-looking.

Worst Features

Throttle body/transmission needs work, 6 disc changer would be nice, gas mileage is a letdown.
