We Love This Car!! — We bought this back in Jan. So we haven't had it very long, but it does awesome on the road. We've already taken it on several road trips. It drives awesome and I love the petal adjustment button!! We never have to move the seat to change drivers.. just push that nifty button!! We are so happy with this car and we got it for a steal!!!

Pros: Good solid car for getting lots of landscaping bricks! Not to huge and its a V-6 so it doesn't burn as much gas! This car does extremely well on gas too.

Cons: Sometimes the conection on the back passenger window don't connect so that window doesn't want to roll down. Thats it.

Nuts And Bolts Seem Fine; Electronics Breaks — Driving and handling is fine by me; electronics seem to set out after 80000-90000 miles.

Very Poorly Made!!! —

Have had major problems with the 2004 Explorer - mechanically. The first few years the car was a dream - a gas guzzler but for teh most part I expected that - with no repair other than usual and normal to be done to it. Almost the day that I went over my warranty 36k miles, the car has been nothing but problems with one issue and repair cost after another. The repairs I have been faced with have nothing to do with normal wear and tear - it is due to purely bad manufacturing of this car and obviously a horrible quality control department as the car I got should have never passed a quality check! People warned me not to buy a Ford...I should have listened!! I will never buy another Explorer or Ford again due to the very bad experience that I have had with the car and also with eth dealership as well as the horrible and pathetic corporate customer service who really are of no help whatsoever. I suggest if you have a problem or complaint to not even waste your time with corporate - hard enough to get a live person there, if you leave messages they don't return your calls. Sppeaking from experience document yoru calls...as it is like starting over every time you call them.

Travel Vehicle — Surprising amounts of torque for a V6, Independent suspension provides for a ultra smooth ride, Gas mileage been 16/21 respectively, ideal vehicle for more then 5 passengers. I do wish it had head rests in the front seats instead of the sportback seats. Transmission went out after 200k miles.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Space, Power, Looks, and Customization Options

Cons: Transmission
