2003 Ford Explorer limited 4.6 V8 from North America
Explorer reliability has slipped
Air conditioning failed.
Transmission failed 3 times.
Rear window recall.
This is the third explorer I have owned and it is by far the least reliable.
The transmission problems are still not fixed, it still clunks and shudders at low speed and after three separate trips to the dealer the mechanic admitted that there have been some problems and recalls with these transmissions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I too have had problems with the transmission. Ford will lose a lot of customers for ever because of this.

As I sit here and type this my 2003 explorer is in the shop for what I consider a transmission problem. The dealerships however is still trying to figure out what is wrong even though the check engine soon light is on. This is my second explorer and my last!!!
