1996 Ford explorer 4DR XLT
By Anthony Arpino on
1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV
At present 145000 miles. Replaced lower ball joints 2X under warranty. Replaced with the ball joints that can be lubricated. Gas mileage has improved since increasing tire preasure to 32 to 35 lbs. (18 to 23 miles per gal highway). I wish it was better. Also use a good fuel injector cleaner every 3000 miles. I have serviced the transmission every 12 to 15000 miles & so far no problems. I find it a comfortable & fun vechile to drive. Excellent handling in snow. One other problem was the thermostate. I had to replace it 4 times. If yours needs to be replaced ask for a heavy duty one that is made in the USA. The automatic choke in the winter kills your gas mileage, since it is temperature sensative
Favorite Features
Comfortable drivers seat. Sun roof. Electric mirrors.
Suggested Improvements
Better undercoating aganist rust. More space between the accelerator and brake pedal. Better gas mileage.
