1995 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Big, roomy inside, comfortable vehicle. Good stock stereo and fine build quality. Good paint. Now the negative. I hope Ford changes those automatic trannys. I maintained mine but still went out at 130K miles. Jeep Cherokee/Wrangler, Isuzu Trooper and Toyota use the same AT which is much more reliable. Explorer has poorly designed brakes and rotors. It's also too heavy which causes tires to wear out to fast. The alignment seemed to go out often. Until Ford makes some changes, I expect to stick to Jeep Cherokee/Wrangler. It's ashame because I used to be into Fords.

Review

Our explorer has been very reliable and provides plenty of room for our family, our dogs, supplies, four sets of golf clubs and trips to visit relatives. Only complaints are the tire wear, its a bit sluggish from stop and some minor electrical annoyances. Overall, I am pleased.

Review

Well I got my 95' in 97' and loved it then. Since then I have had 3 transmissions, 2 thermostats, 2EGR valves and numerous other small repairs. The most irritation thing is the color scheme. Willow Green interior. No other paint job will go with it at all. Lately i got a Flowmaster exhaust cat-back and a K&n air filter and i got back all the power i hve lost over the years from being young and dumb. I think i'm going to hang on to it and do little modifications for a couple more years. oh and the 96' bumperskirt fits perfect for that intergrated fog lights. so my 95 looks like a 96 1/2 and drives like a 99'.

Loved my 95 Explorer so much I bought my wife a 99. They're both great, but I particularly love mine with 6 disc CD changer, premium audio, leather, sun roof, all the etras!

Watch out for the transmission

Review

My transmission shop call the truck the "exploder." He loves them, because they bring him so much business. According to this mechanic, Ford used the Falcon transmission with the six, and a better transmission with the 8. My truck is a six. I have had one entire rebuild and a major repair for a cost of approx $3500. The transmission is going into fail safe again. Don't know how much it will cost this time. Truck has 190,000 miles. This works out to a major transmission repair every 65,000 miles. The ventilation system doesn't work properly. The truck will get stuck 4 wheel drive low. It will be a long time before I buy another Ford product.

Review

I bought my Explorer in March of 99 when it was 4 yrs. old. Didn't have any problems up until about 2 yrs ago and since then I've had my share. I have had two of the same problems with the clutch that required a part be replaced. The 2nd time it happened just over a year apart (12 mos and a week) and the warranty was for a year. Also had a problem where the car just wouldn't not start, then miraculosly started working after having to get towed to the shop on 2 different occassions. So I'm just waiting for the next thing to break.

Best SUV out there

1995 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

I am attached to my Explorer. It has tons of room, a solid feel, great looks, reliability, and versatility. I have 92,000 miles on the car and it runs strong. Great in snow, and has never burned a drop of oil. No electronic glitches or pointless repairs. Easy to work under the hood, and cheap to fix. Lots of torque in the engine, and has a nice jump off the line. Nice sound system, and barrage of features all for a nice price. Needed few repairs, a starter at 85,000, and alternator at 89,000...but that was my fault (dont use power washer under hood). Awesome car, good work Ford!

Review

I have thoroughly enjoyed my Explorer. It's just too bad that it's a 2-Dr vehicle. I'm having a baby and have to trade it for a 4-Dr.

Gail's Explorer

Review

This automobile has been very reliable in that it has not left us down on the road. There have however, been two major problems with the front brakes. One in which the right front disc cracked requiring all new brake replacement. In another instance the front brakes have lasted perhaps one year before replacement was required. Because of the fixed rear suspension system the ride it not comfortabe on rough roads.
