There is a shifting problem.

2001 Ford Explorer Base

My SUV is a comfortable car. The back seats fold down perfectly for more room for dogs, hay, groceries, etc... The front seats are comfortable for driving in. It's also a good size for me! The only issues it has is needing a new shift sensor, new speakers, and a new deck. The car is white which is also a plus! It's been really reliable and very convenient.
