Leaking transmission fluid at only 33,000 miles. Has a lot of tech goodies but car has a cheap feel and drive. I had Ford fix the leaking transmission under warranty and then I got rid of it at 35,000 miles, prior to expiration of factory warranty. I would not recommend this car based on poor quality.
Made in the South, a groundbreaking series classic
1998 Ford ExplorerMarlette Torras - Polson, MT09/29/2015
Buyers of older used vehicles have an important dillema to solve first: how can they expect to deal with the expense and inconvenience of inevitable repairs? In the seminal series of the Ford Explorer, transformational electronics were added about 1996, with a diagnostic display from a trip computer. This gave the driver an advantage of calculating their mileage and MPG, checking tire pressure , etc.. All the new owner has to do is look at the mileage and then the milestone chart for maintenance, and calculate the risks. Everything still works in my vehicle, but I have put only one major ($550.00) and one minor repair on it in a year.
2012 Ford ExplorerLiz Smith - Bowie, MD03/22/2017
This car is just more. More room for passengers, more slick gadgets and features, but also more gas consumption. I was driving a Prius but as I get older I find it harder to hoist myself out of it, and if I was next to an SUV I couldn't really see what was around me when driving. Now, I'm the one blocking other's view.
