2005 Ford Explorer XLT 4×4 Review

The 2005 Ford Explorer 4×4 is a typical of most of the Ford lineup. By that we mean, it is a lot of vehicle for the money. The on demand 4×4 is a great feature, and the 6 cylinder engine provides a trouble free power plant. However, there have been some problems with the overdrive transmission. It will be a good idea to put the vehicle through its paces on the test drive, and secure a long term warranty as a backup. There is also the ever present Ford rot issues along the rear wheel wells. They haven’t figured out how to deal with that after decades of trying.

Pros: A lot of bang for the buck

Cons: Transmission and rot issues
