My wife totaled our 03 Windstar. Of course, we only enjoyed a bout 6
mos of payment freedom. We need a daily driver, so it has to have some
room left on the odometer. I'm thinking a 6 cyl Escape or Explorer in
the '06 to '10 range. However, it doesn't have to be an SUV as we no
longer need a family hauler type vehicle. AWD drive is ok, but once
again, not necessary. What I really want to know is if there is any
inherent problems with either model SUV, or Ford products in general.
I've poked around online and found complaints of tranny and brake
issues on the Explorer, and the Flex sounds like it has engine shut
down and brake problems. Anyone care to jump in? Thanks.
