2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4.0 liter V6 from North America
Not worth the money
Shortly after I had bought the vehicle it was having a hard time idoling. In the morning when it was cold I could start it and then it would idle up and down and then shut off. I had it in for repairs and it needed a vacum hose replaced. Total repairs for labor and hose ran about One hundred and sixty dollars. About a month later the truck had a hard time starting; I thought the starter was going. When I went to start the vehicle it would sometimes take about five seconds to turn over. I once again took it to the shop where they told me that I needed a new fuel pump. Total costs to have that replaced was fourteen hundred dollars. This vehicle has been nothing, but a nightmare!
Vehicle is too costly to repair!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You got completely ripped off paying $1,400 to have a fuel pump replaced. The fuel pump should of cost around $200 max... (my Ranger-probably the same fuel pump, cost me around $120. The labor should've been around $200 max. So they basically over charged you $1,000. Having to have a fuel pump replaced around 58,000 isn't that major of a repair. IMHO.
