1993 Ford Explorer XL 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I can't believe all of the things that
went wrong with this vehicle!
Transmissions, count 'em, we did two,
now needs repairs again! Went through
brake pads so fast we thought they
were faulty! Little things always
went wrong, but $$$$to fix...gas gauge
went, required entire new dash,
ignition, still usable but a pain in
the neck, all four door handles were
broken and floppy. on and on and
on...to top it off, very tippy and
unstable feeling....finally rolled it!


Best Features

Fairly good 4wd reliability, comfortable seating.


Worst Features

Remove rad cap, insert new model underneath.

1993 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

This sport utility has been a great
dependable college vehicle. I have put
about 70,000 miles on it and only had
minor repairs, despite being quite
hard on it.


Best Features

versatility, you can strap skiis/bikes or anything else to the top, tow a small trailer and still haul whatever else you need in an enclosed space


Worst Features

more powerful engine, which the newer ones have

Review

bought the car at 90000 and now have
15000. ive probably put at least $4000
into in the last 3 years. various
problems: brakes, driver door hinge
went bad ($700), too many other little
things to remember. a/c broke.
inflatable seat pads stopped working
and one deflated causing it to tear
from wear. driver door handle, not the
latch, broke off because of hinge
issue. trans not very smooth.
passenger auto door locks dont work any
more. rear window wiper only works
when it wants.


Best Features

I have long legs and big feet, and i find this vehicle extremely comfortable, even more so than many of the full size trucks. back seats fold down to create a lot of space in the back. good turning radius. decent mpg.


Worst Features

Higher quality interior. higher ground clearance. Overall quality of vehicle needs to be stepped up a notch.
