1993 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV


Review

Bought new in SC with a dozen miles on it. 11 Years later, have just had to replace the clutch at about 80K. Extremely reliable. Not really any problems to mention. Just a great all-around dependable SUV.


Best Features

Manual, Fold-Down Second Row. Good price. Vinyl Seats.


Worst Features

More power.

Review

Bought this sport SUV for my daughter but learned to like it. Overall it has been reliable with some problems that others have noted: inside door handle broke off, gas gauge broke at 60K, air vents are shoddy, FM cassett died at 100K. Only big repair has been 5 speed tranmission- shifting 1-2 grinds!! Repaired but grinds again! Important to change trans fluid and use the RIGHT fluid. Stability better with big tires, no air bags scare me. OK for running chores but don't like using it on the freeway.


Best Features

Comfortable seating (cloth), good space use, nice exterior paint job.


Worst Features

Much has been done already since this is a 93. But sturdier interior door handles and ..Ford, get your act together on gas gauges!! This is my second Ford, got em 15 years apart, and still the same crappy gas gauge!

Review

Good SUV until the transmission went out @ 163,000. But that should be expected. Before that barely any problems to mention.


Best Features

Good basic design, and fair off road ability.


Worst Features

I wish it had the slide down rear window like the 4 runner.
