2006 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


This Model Ford is a piece of Junk. Every issue that everyone has with this car we have had. Bought it used, we have had to replace the radiator twice now. The lurching problem with the transmission fixed twice(36k) and now the breaks at low speed breaking make an awful noise, oh and thats right after ford installed new brakes. All service done at a local ford dealership and they seem clueless as how to fix there own car! We were honda faithfuls but thought we would try a FORD (buy American... right). Stand in line call me an idiot later. Car now has 76k another radiator to buy. I think I'll take this hunk out back and put it out of its misery! STEER CLEAR OF THIS JUNK!

Improve your warranty, even gm has a 100,000 warranty. Recall the radiators man...come on...and the transmission lurching problem..@ 36k (GASP)!!!!
