These Explorers have transmission problems, and ford refuses to acknowledge it and continued to sell them with these issues for over a decade and its not just a rebuild it needs, the internal design is flawed and rebuild will not fix them but for so long and I am dumbfounded the amount of these that still being sold to good people and they have no clue about it, you were took advantage of and if you bought it used its already been rebuilt at least once.
