Good Car, Questionable 5 Speed Transmiss
By John_2 on
1993 Ford Explorer XL 2dr SUV
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
Stability better with big tires, no
air bags scare me. OK for running
chores but don't like using it on the
Comfortable seating (cloth), good space
use, nice exterior paint job.
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!
