2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 5.0L V8 from North America
A never ending money pit
Rear window wiper motor burned out at 11,000 miles.
Leather on steering wheel became unstitched around 15,000 miles.
Took 8 months to replace Firestone tires on recall with Goodyears.
LCD display on stereo went out around 30,000 miles.
Window rattles inside door when half down.
50,000 miles, the oil pressure gauge stopped working.
Lots of rattles and squeeking noises inside dashboard and panels.
Transmission lost 3rd gear at 74000 miles. Bushing failed, cracked transmission case, metal chips blew the torque converter. Torque converter send metal inside transmission. Extremely expensive repair. Needed transmission rebuilt along with new transmission housing.
This is a wonderful looking vehicle, but has been an expensive venture for a young automobile.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
