I have the opportunity to buy a nice 2006 Eddie Bauer explorer (17,000 miles). I'm worried about the reliability. Did Ford finally fix the radiator problems with this vehicle. Can any 2006 v6 owners weigh in?
Welcome to the forum! I haven't personally owned a 2006 and up explorer but I know that they did some updates to the radiator but I know from time to time people do have issues but that's just like any other vehicle. Whats the price of the explorer?
I have an 05 v6 - very similar vehicle. The engines are pretty good with a few known issues like timing chains but most of those issues had been fixed by 06 IIRC. The transmissions have issues with solenoids and servo pistons. If the vehicle is cheap, in good overall condition, rust free and you don't mind potentially paying for a trans rebuild they're solid vehicles.
