1995 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV


In general this truck has been maintenance free but when things fail they fail BIG. The radio failed in the first 3 months. After that it was OK until the transmission failed at 75k miles and (after a rebuild) failed again at 90k miles. The computer generated "OD/ engine" lite illuminates often and it costs $150 to put it on the machine and I learn that "its nothing to worry about". Finally, it costs $150 to get a key and remote control "programmed" from FORD. This is clearly a vehicle made for a 2 year lease = use it and throw it away. Unfortunately, I bought it thinking I could keep it for 150k miles, but sadly have learned that domestic cars are not built for that.

Best Features

Easy access to work on the engine. Lots of space in the back - especially with the seats folded down.

Worst Features

Reliability of transmission, computer. Add a readout so that a consumer can understand the codes that the computer generates so we can tell if the problem is serious or just a red herring. Add a consumer reset for the computer.
