Green Explorer That Wouldn't
By Blue from VB on
1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV
It is a roomy midsize SUV and the ride was car-like. It had a lot of nifty features as one would expect from a Ford that was not entry level, including a compass, temperature gauge, reclining front and rear seats, etc. The downside to it is when it goes it goes! In a twelve month period I spent almost $2,000 in maintenance ($900 for a heater core, $600 for a water pump 6 months later, then $500 for brakes and front tires). The vehicle left me stranded on two seperate occassions and I do my regularly scheduled maintenance on all of my vehicles. Ford's service was subpar and it was the last Ford that I will buy!
Lots of features, leather, gadgets, V- 8 power, aggressive off road look even without the brushguard.
Lots of features that I could look at when I was stranded off road.
