2006 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


This is the worst vehicle I've ever owned. This Explorer was actually at the dealer for warranty tranny repair for 7 consecutive weeks! It was a problem with Ford and the dealer, and no one ever returned my calls. I tried Customer Care at Ford and their response were "what can we do for you?" And they did nothing! I am dealing with a lawyer now to try and resolve this. The vehicle would surge forward at the end of a stop, enough that you could spill your drink or, if not wearing a seatbelt, do more damage. I was told that this is just a charcteristic of the "first in class" 6 speed transmission.

Best Features

Radio, Navigation System. Comfy for long trips.

Worst Features

Don't take back to the dealer with tranny problems, I have read several sites where people have complained of the same issue and never got it fixed.
