2007 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

problem #4

Feb 052015

Explorer Limited 4.6L/ V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


After buying a 2007 Ford Explorer V8 as my fist car I unassumingly bought a money sucking problem. The problems started a month after buying the car with transmission clunking. Last month the right rear wheel bearing failed. The humming sound progressively got worse and worse until I was forced to get it fixed. The part cost $212 and the labor was $350. It seems that I am going to have to live under a bridge or sell this car at a lost. This is my first financial mistake.

Explorer Ironman V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

Front, driver side wheal bearing needed replacement at 65,000 miles. I can't believe I have to do such a repair already. I drove my 96 Explorer for 180,000 miles and never had to replace a single bearing.
