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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, better bump and heave manners.
