2013 Explorer XLT
My wife and i just bought a 2013 XLT with AWD 3.5l with 77,000 miles and was wondering what everyone who had this year thought ? Where they reliable ? Did you enjoy them ? I can take it back within 7 days and get my money back so im curious as to what people say.

Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
Here is a thread you may want to have a look at; https://www.explorerforum.com/forum...k-up-inspection-used-ex-check-list.314373/The 2 biggest concerns seem to be the internal water pump and the PTU (Power Transfer Unit).
There are several posts on changing the fluid on a somewhat regular basis (30K miles I think). The PTU fluid capacity is small and it is exposed to quite a bit of heat.
