      for 99 and 2000 ford explorer V8 have a problem with their tansmission computer. half of them that experiance a tansmission failure is due to this. Mine has been in and out of the shop for 6 months because of this and is finally almost working (has to go in for transmission fluid leak because of a terrible mechanic). I would avoid this car in a V8 model!
    • Most Reliable Vehicle!

      We bought this for $2K as a 2nd "beater" car for my hubby to drive to work until we could afford something better. Man were we surprised when this one turned out to be our most reliable family vehicle! Lasted us 7 years and we were able to put 340,000 miles on it! The only repairs we did while owning were mostly avg. maintance-- spark plugs, oil changes, battery, tires. We had a few that were a little more expensive-- alternator, belts, ball bearings and struts. Loved this SUV. I've heard a lot of people have issues with ford, but we sure didn't. We laughed that it was held together with duck tape and prayer, it did us well.
    • 4x4 all weather love

      I'm the second owner. Purchased at 60,000 miles. Transmission ran a little rough at 99,000 miles - did 2 transmission fluid changes - cleared up any particulate in the system. Ran perfectly until 215,000 when I had the bands changed out. Runs just like it did at 60k mi. I take this vehicle for mild off-road exploring. It gets me to work through heavy snow and weather conditions when others in pricier all wx-traction vehicles are stuck on the side of the road. I regularly get 17.8 mpg. During snow conditions in 4wd high gear my mpg drops to 14. Still handles well. Corners pretty tightly for an SUV. I am having some trouble with the rain ducts around the sun-roof, but that can be helped by keeping the ducts clear so they don't back up in heavy rains. The only mild complaint I've had from passengers in the back seat on long trips is that the seat's aren't the most comfortable, but still not bad, and they'd like a head rest and greater adjustment on the seat-belt height so it won't choke shorter passengers. (I'd like that too.) I LOVE MY CAR!!!!!! Good maintenance = long life. FANTASTIC ENGINE!!! SMOOTH!!!
