Ford Explorer

1995 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Great to look at and fun to drive but expensive to maintain and not very economical gas mileage. Have had to do major transmission work and major air conditioning work. Would probably think twice about buying another Explorer, although this is my second one. Probably will look at Toyota next time around.

Would Not Buy Again

Review

In two years of ownership I have had to spend well over $5,000 on repairs. Was dealer vehicle as well, so it should have been fine. Rear windows don't work well, transmission had to be replaced, many interior lights out, certain switches do not respond well, does not handle very well, acceleration leaves something to be desired, power antenna went out, gas mileage average (17 MPG average), the interior is loud during ride, and the suspension is really bumpy. I have enjoyed it sometimes, but it is too expensive to maintain and it seems as though something else breaks too frequently. The car just doesn't seem to hold up well over time. I hope to get more out of it, but I don't see buying one again.

Review

I have 120,000 miles on it, the only problem i've had so far is the transfer case is starting to whine but thats only because i've been "pushing it to it's limits". I have the five speed and it's pretty fun to drive. Other then normal matanince costs, i havent had to spend a dime on fixing it. Also it's a dram in the snow, i drovew through 17 inches in albany in 4 wheel auto with no sliding problems!

Maybe we just didn't get lucky

Review

I like the car as far as the interior goes, but we have had many mechanical problems. The main thing we replaced was the transmission. Even now, there is a delay when we change gears from park and nearly every time the car shifts, a thud comes from underneath the car. There is short in the switch for washer fluid. The automatic A/C doesn't work very well (your either cold or warm, not much of a middle). When idiling, the car will sometimes shake and shut off. Lots of squeaks and rattles. The ride is also very bumpy. Carfax says there is nothing fishy with its history, and we had it checked by a Ford dealership mechanic before we bought it. What happened?

Lots of fit and trim problems at the beginning but fixed under warrantee. Haven't done much in the last 50k miles except change the oil.

Review

Excellent automobile. Have only had to perform routine maintaince to keep it going strong. I purchased in 1997 with 43000 miles on it. I would like a new pick-up truck but can't bring myself to sell my Explorer. It's just been far to reliable a vehicle over the years.

Review

I have a 1995 XLT V6 4x4 and have pushed it to its limits only to have it ask for more. I bought it with 78k miles on it and I'm about to sell it with 111k on it. My new car is a 2001 Limited Edition, because I enjoyed my '95 so much. Its comfortable on long trips, practical around town, and unstoppable off-road.

Respectable

Review

I bought this car with over 100,000 miles and it has not had any major problems. In the past year I replaced a bad thermostat ($7), a inside door handle ($12), and recently an air idle control sollonoid is going out ($104). The fuel economy is my biggest annoyance, at 15 mpg for most short trips around the area. But, it also has gotten a little over 20 mpg on some longer freeway trips. Overall, it's not a bad vehicle. Also very sure-footed in snow in 4x4 mode.
