1994 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 6 cylinder from North America
Buy a Toyota!
We replaced the transmission about 12 months after we bought the Explorer. Transmission shop said they get Ford Explorers in all the time with transmission problems. And it couldn't just be the transmission, we had to replace the torque converter also. Total cost of that repair was about $1300.00. The cruise control went out after a couple of months of use, that was a $300 repair.
We purchased the vehicle for $8600 and after 2 short years the Kelly Blue Book says it's worth about $4700.00. We have taken great care of this vehicle and it is in excellent condition. We have advertised it for 3 months now at $4700 with no takers. I don't how anyone in their right mind would buy a vehicle that loses almost 40% of it's value in 2 short years. I learned my lesson.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have one also that is nothing but problems for me. i am a single mother with a 5 month old. i am buying this vehicle so the baby would have reliable transportation. but I have had nothing but expenses to lay out. i cannot afford this so I will probably end up loosing it. and it's a shame I thought I was getting a good vehicle.
