We have owned our Ford Explorer since
1998. The model we bought is a 1992. We
purchased it with approx. $75k miles on
it. The only thing that has gone srong
is an $80 fuel mix sensor. The car is
reliable, well designed and has never
left us on the side of the road. The
car is now 12 years old and has proven
as reliable as any car I have owned in
the past. The 4x4 capabiltiies have
been stronlgy utilized in Lake Tahoe
and Reno areas in Summer and Winter.
The car was also used to tow a light
motor boat to and from the San
Francisco Delta area. Ford made a great
car that is easy to service and I
expect to last into the 200k miles+
4x4 ability / Low Range. Storage Space.
Passenger and Cargo design. Car
handles 'like a truck' but its not so
big that you feel like your in a tank.
Personally, they should have a sunroof
instead of a moonroof. Too bad they
didn't have the V-8 engine in 1992. The
V-6 is good.. but this car can do well
with this V-8. Apparently Ford agrees
as they added it in later years.
