2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


I now have 18,000 miles and here comes the transmission clunk (at slow speeds) everyone is talking about. Not sure what to do as it sounds like everyone is getting the big blow off from Ford. This is my third Explorer and yes it is quiet. The glare from the dash however is life threatening and I hope Ford's attorneys are prepared. The only help has been to put on one of those white-trash dash covers....really classy! It's no secret about the door handles and gas mileage. Ride was very nice at first, now after a year feeling each bump! Also if quality is job one, then how about a five or seven year warranty?

Best Features

Sound system, cabin is quiet

Worst Features

Transmission, dash glare problem, leather looks old after one year
