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


6 radiators Ladies and Gents.
You read that correctly - 6 radiators.
Averaging about 1 radiator for every 20K miles.
I brought a 2006 Explorer for my 16 year old son in 2008 - only had 26K miles on it.
We have replaced the radiator 6 times since purchase at $700 a pop.
This vehicle is so unreliable that it now sits in my driveway, I can't trust it to be a reliable vehicle for my son, who is now 2 hours away at college.
Huge mistake on my part for buying it, huge mistake on Ford's part for not recalling it.
BTW, tranny jerks when you shift into reverse.

Best Features

Makes a nice yard ornament.

Worst Features

Develop a permanent fix for this radiator and transmission problem. I can't believe the number of complaints!
