Run, don't walk away from the piece of Garbage. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/07/2008. Trim: 2004 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0L 4WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This is a good looking and comfortable vehicle, esp. on long trip
Cons: Good luck getting anywhere without a mechanical breakdown. This was my ninth car ownership and by far the most costly. Goggle "04 Ford Explorer" and "transmission". You will see that I am not alone.
Overall review: This was my second explorer. The first I purchased second hand from a friend whiich was a basic Sport model with a manual transmission. When I traded up to this car, the car had thirty six thousand miles and the the factory warrenty had just expired. The car experienced more mechical issues for a car with less then fifty thousand miles over any car I've owned in twenty six years. I will also say that the service manager at Courtesy Lincoln Mercury in Conyers, GA should be prosecuted for frauld. The fact that Ford would employ sure a terrible individual indicates to me that this is a company only deserves bad word of mouth. Welcome to the information age!!! Do yourself a favor and buy an Acura.
