1996 Ford Explorer XL 2dr SUV

Review

I never in a million years thought i
would be writing a glowing review of a
Ford but here I am! My V8 currently has
189000 on the clock and it has been
almost completely trouble free for over
60K miles. Regular tranny service and
oil changes, upper and lower ball
joints, an idler pulley, brake pads,
one rotor, fuel pump (may not have even
been bad) and a new set of Continental
tires. I have read the 6cyl is crap but
the V8 has a great engine/tranny setup.
gas mileage is HORRIBLE, i average
14MPG. Avoid the 6, get the 8, you will
pass everything but gas stations! Ride
is good on smooth roads but if there
are bumps in the road you will know it.

Best Features

Killer V8 power, power leather seats are way too comfy, brakes stop it on a dime, handles great. Controls are easy to reach.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage, better bump and heave manners.
