What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Ford Explorer

Ford Explorer Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
No issues with the vehicle to date. Not even minor ones...
2006 4dr SUV 292-horsepower 4.6L V8
6-speed automatic RWD
The expected life span of the vehicle is longer than most cars. It is built on a solid frame that will take a lot of abuse.
2006 4dr SUV 292-horsepower 4.6L V8
6-speed automatic RWD
I have had good experience with this car. No major problems.
Ford Explorer Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr SUV 290-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I've had issues with the MyFord Touch system (fixed by latest update). Got annoying wind noise coming from somewhere around the a-pillars, and the mirrors have had water in the signals since new. I haven't bothered getting this stuff fixed yet.
2004 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
Absolutely TERRIBLE transmission problems that Ford refuses to address. I won;t buy another Ford despite the fact I have 3 in my driveway now.
2004 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
The SUV became a money pit in my 6th year of ownership. I've driven Fords all my life, and this was by far the worst I've ever owned. Internet research confirmed lots of owners were having similar problems: total brake jobs every 25k miles, front (50k) and real wheel bearings (67k), rear door trim bezel cracked 3x (fixed 1st time under warranty, I paid 2nd time, left as-is 3rd time), and the real killer - a complete tranny overhaul at only 67k miles. Ford knew there were problems w/ the tranny, but decided to stick it to the owners anyways. It was a great SUV to drive, but it cost me over $9k in maint/repairs in the last 3 years I owned this SUV.
2002 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Bearings Bearings Bearings, Rear end has been serviced seven times all due to the CHEAP bearings that FORD uses and then refuses to stand behind their parts.
2002 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
This truck has been the worst reliable vehicle I have ever owned, EVER!

2010 2dr Coupe 400-horsepower 6.2L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
best warranty offered for a modern muscle car 5 year/100,000 mile warranty and a 60-day money back guarantee
2010 2dr Coupe 400-horsepower 6.2L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
GM Powertrains have proven themselves to be reliable. This Camaro is built really well, and should be a very reliable car.
