Should I buy a new Ford Explorer
Hi my name is James I wanted to ask if there are any problems with the new 2022 and 2023 ford explorer I tried to Google it and found nothing I want to make sure before I buy it there are no problems I might have to deal with thanks
Don't buy one. And if you are set on the Explorer then lease it and return it before the warranty ends.
It’s extremely difficult to know how reliable the Ford Explorer is going to be in the long run, because it is built on an entirely new platform, and has only been around a few years.
The problem with them seems to be in the new transmission, which was built in collaboration with GM.
One other concern is EcoBoost, which Scotty has covered countless of times.
The only one I would consider is the engine that comes with the police interceptor version of the Explorer. But it still has that potentially problematic transmission.
I'm not really worried about great gas mileage I want reliability with decent gas mileage
Well it depends on your definition of "decent gas mileage", but if you want reliability and you can afford it buy a brand new 4Runner; it's definitely reliable. Or if you want something smaller get a Highlander.

I want ... decent gas mileage
I wouldn't buy anything new from Ford unless it was a 3/4 ton pickup.
