1992 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV


Review

I bought this vehicle in 02, with 60000 miles. I now have 75,000 miles on it and it is still running strong. The only big repair that I have done was had the A/C Compressor replaced and that was only $800. The former owner bought it new and had the oil replaced every 3,000 miles, as I stil do. The engine is not quite powerful enough for me, but it is a reliable vehicle. I would suggest this vehicle to anyone who wants a reliable, fun to drive, and basic SUV.


Favorite Features

Leather seating surfaces... very sporty leather Reliability Simple towing package... right on the bumper


Suggested Improvements

A better A/C system A more powerful engine Possibly offer a V8 as is offered in newer models

Review

My wife purchased it in '92, and I begain driving it in '99 when we met. It had a tranny rebuild at 94K miles (has 114K now), but I hear that's typical. Performance improved when the Air Flow Meter was cleaned (not replaced) recently. We just drove it 1000 miles from LA to Utah and back, 120+ degrees in the desert, A/C blasting, stereo cranked, loaded with camping gear, ran cool & smooth.


Favorite Features

Reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Better V6, 16-inch wheels.
