Ford Explorer 2005 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Explorer here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Lost explorer

    THE Explorer probably wouldn't be my first choice. I'd opt for a Nissan Patrol, Toyota Landcruiser or Mitsubishi Pajero. But if you're towing only 1600kg I'd consider a smaller four-wheel-drive wagon such as a Pathfinder or a Prado. Even a Subaru Outback would tow your caravan, happily cope with the bush roads you want to go down, and be more comfortable. The Explorer is known to have problems with the auto transmission and the timing chains, which are at the back of the engine and costly to replace if they break.
