F.O.R.D.= Fix Or Repair Daily
By Catfish on
Vehicle1994 Ford Explorer XL 2dr SUV 4WD
ReviewWithin the first yr I had to get another trans put in. Then the gas gage stopped functioning, so I had to count and keep track of my my miles. I was told by Ford that it might cost me over $300 to fix whatyever the problem was, fuel sender,gage,gas tank, etc,etc. The second yr I started hearing noises up front whenever I engaged the 4 wheel drive. There's something wrong with the way the wheels engage when the 4 wheel is put on. That's going to cost me about $600 to fix. This past month,(march), the trans went again. Another $1600 for a so-called remanufactured one with a one yr or 12,000 mile warranty.
Best FeaturesThe accessabilty of getting in the back without opening the whole hatch. It's a SUV.
Worst FeaturesDo a better job on the installation of transmission parts so they won't break down. Fix the fuel sensor so it won't malfunction or stop working after a couple of yrs. From what I've heard in talking to several mechanics, the '94 Explorer was made with quite a few defects.
