2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0L from North America
Biggest mistake ever
Rattles from the dash, doors and rear hatch.
Squeaks caused by bad welds in the "A" pillar.
Paint problems with bubbles and poor finish on the roof & door area.
Power seat mechanism would go "up" all by itself.
Constant whining sound from the hub seals when driving at low speeds.
Brakes make clunking sound when released from a full stop.
This Explorer has been in for a service 14 times and for 28 days, and most of these problems remain unresolved.
Having also owned another older Explorer that has been trouble free, I am not impressed with the number of defects and low quality of this vehicle.
All of the problems I've had with this lemon overshadow anything good I could ever have to say about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Don't feel bad, I bought a 2000 Explorer new. Had to have a new motor put in at 36,000 miles.

Yes I too have had nothing but problems with my 2000 Explorer. At 39,000 the engine was knocking and all they had to say was that it was a good thing I have an extended warranty. And it still knocks. It is a piece of (*#!@#) and I will never buy another Ford.
