Review
Rolling up to a quarter million miles on my Explorer, I can't complain a whole lot. The total repair costs in the last 8 years, since I bought it was $9,108, equivalent to a $95 per month car payment. Ususally there are 2 to 3 repairs per year, about $300 each time. Note that everything went wrong at 175,000, so I spent $3,000 in repairs over 1000 miles (most of that was rebuilding the transmission). The next 60,000 miles were great. At 235,000 another $2,000 in repairs because I messed things up myself (didn't tighten new headlight; it fell out of socket and burnt engine wiring and everyting in path). At quarter- million, cracked cylinders - expensive fix >3K, said no. Still good parts
Favorite Features
Headroom. Note that 1992 Explorer and 2002 Explorer are same height, but '02 is higher off ground. That means the '92 has more interior height. It feels spacious, especially if you have a big head or wear a 10 gallon hat. Also, the dual visors are a feature the 92's have that the new ones don't.
Suggested Improvements
Actually, I wish they made the new ones like the old ones.
