problem #1

Explorer XLT 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

At 75,000 miles,the rear struts are shot. It will cost $450 to have them replaced. They have to do an alignment on them. Next time just get a car with rear leaf springs!

Screwed again !

What a disgrace for Ford to sell this lemon to the public. Who do they think they are fooling? Will never buy one of these again, and will tell everyone I know what a awful crappy vehicle this is. What goes around, comes around!
