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!


Favorite Features

Fairly good 4wd reliability, comfortable seating.


Suggested Improvements

Remove rad cap, insert new model underneath.

1993 Ford Explorer SUV 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.


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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