1995 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


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?

Best Features

I like the auto-dimming rear view mirror and the power mirrors, windows, and seats. Enough cargo room as well, especially since the back seats fold down. The controls for everything are fairly well placed.

Worst Features

The A/C does not work very well for an in between temp, great for cold and warm, but not really cool. Build quality does not seem to be fantastic. The radio and some other displays have burnt out. Bumpy ride.
