1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV


Review

Wife bought new 94. Couple of minor recalls taken care of by Ford dealer. Wife neglected oil in 2000 for over a year, and became sludge- had to flush engine oil. But still runs fine. average 17mpg. get 19 hwy. Routine care otherwise. Inside passenger back door handle mechanisms abused by kids and wife replaced herself! Needs front wheel bearings replaced and repacked now but thats it. 140000 miles now.


Best Features

Comfort. Auto light system.


Worst Features

Better mileage-but what can you expect from early SUV's.

Review

My 2WD model has held up for 11 years and 200 thousand miles, and it still works. Although I have had to replace many things, Ford is not lying when they say "Built Ford Tough."


Best Features

The styling is generic and not too out there. The controls are easy to find, and the car is easy to park.


Worst Features

Needs more power. 160 HP is not enough. The fuel consumption could be better and the electrical system is normally shot after 10 years.

Review

Switched out from a 99 4Runner to lose car payment. Biggest difference is in the ride. Much harsher than the 4Runner, noiser too. Power from the v6 adequate but I live in CO at 5500 ft so this is expected (4Runner wasn't much different). I have always had Ford or Toyota vehicles and been satisfied with both. These trucks are very good for the money. Much more interior room than 4Runner. Gas mileage around 15-16. 4Runner was about 17-19.


Best Features

No car payment! Roomy & comfortable interior. Nice exterior. Overall build quality good. Good 4wd system with a real LOW range. Reliable and easy to work on.


Worst Features

Standard V6 low on power but I knew that going in. Heated leather seat option would be nice. I will be adding this feature soon.

Review

This is the second Explorer we have owned. My husband drove his 1991 to over 200,000 miles before it puttered out. My 1995 is at 209,000 and still running strong. Any repairs on this thing have been minor and relatively low cost. I would definitely buy another Explorer.


Best Features

Roomy, powerful, low maintenance, easy to keep clean.


Worst Features

My check engine light comes on after about 100 miles of constant driving. This has been happening for years, even to the previous owner. I've had it checked and there is nothing wrong with the vehicle, it's just a glitch.
