"this is our second explorer both have been very dependable. would buy another. the first is a 1992 model still driving with over 600,000 miles. it is on second engine and tranny both work fine. i replaced front and rear brake pads and front wheel bearings on 2005 recently. changing all fluids and doing a tune up next week"
"This SUV is my first vehicle. It has traveled with me for 75,000 miles (I am her second owner), primarily in the city, but it has amazing highway mileage. I was 16, so I immediately started going out into the woods, despite having a 2WD. I have traveled across central Florida several times in it with no problems. Needless to say, I have put plenty of wear and tear on it, but it still has potential if someone swapped the transmission, and maybe a pump. *knocks on wood* I love this car, and all I have had to replace is the upper control arms and barrings on my front end (of course regular maintenance). Shocks are probably due."
"Plug flew out due to 3 threads holding to a aluminum head! Design Defect! Had to repair ALL Plugs with helicoils. Rear wheel bearing gone after 100000 miles. Trans replaced 130000. Transfer case and differential repaired 145000. Climate control venting no longer works. Used a wire to attach to actuator made of plastic. Odometer module not working. Takes 2 me two hours to take dash apart to repair. Not worth it. This is why I no longer by ford! Put more into it then I paid."
