1994 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV


Review

after buying what was rated by CR as a "good buy," I've had nothing but trouble from this 1994 sport model. The undercarriage is rusting out, the tranny went out twice, the ignition module has been replaced twice, windshield washer motors replaced, ac gives out, emissions equipment no longer will pass smog requirements and so on... Without a warranty I would have paid twice for this vehicle, oh did I mention that I had to replace the firestones before the recall was established?

Review

This little thing has done very well under some rather tough usage. It's actually quick and fun to drive - not at all like it's 4 door big brother who turns like a boat and rocks and rolls over bumps like an elephant -but he does hold more stuff! Keep up the maintance and little things do go wrong, but.. it will hang in there.


Best Features

Quick and easy to drive.


Worst Features

IMprove clutch assembly that we had to improve twice and access to back seat - bad for people over 30.

Review

One and only owner. 88000 miles and going. Did all the routine maintenances, but did replaced both radial arm bushings, breaks, shocks and took cared Manual transmission problem a couple of years ago... in addition to the two new batteries and two sets of new tires (one was recalled Firestone). Truck don't always get good grip in the rain. Will keep it for a while longer.


Best Features

Overall versatility (hauled furniture, mulch, etc). Powerful v6 engine.


Worst Features

AC/Heater control is a little screwy at times.

Review

ordered it brand new from the factory and have not been disappointed since. Had to put a new slave cylinder in and change the cluth, bit thats it!! Peolple have mentioned that the brakes burn out too quick, well, that's when the lifetime replacement guarantee at Firestone comes in handy. 94,000 and starts everytime I turn the key. The most dependable vehicle a person could ask for. when I finish driving this one into the ground, I could only be so lucky to find something as ole faithful. All in all, a great truck.


Best Features

size, shape and style


Worst Features

shifter is too close to the cup holders/ center console.

Review

This baby has 130,000+ miles and runs as good as the day I bought it. Nary a speck of rust for being exposed to road salt every winter. Mostly rides like a truck, but handles nice. V-6 runs smooth, but sluggish on hills. Replaced both radial arm bushings, breaks, shocks. Manual trany leaks a little oil. I'm keeping it a while longer. I hate new car payments.


Best Features

Extremely tight turning radius. Overall appearance drew me in. Seats are very comfortable and factory stereo sounds great. I like the wheel well and running board treatments.


Worst Features

Improved suspension for a softer ride. Tire jack is difficult and slow. HVAC selector could be more user friendly (ie, push buttons & dials would be easier).
