Review

I purchased my Ford Explorer brand new and
it had at least 5 recalls. The most
significant would be the tires. I had
very serious engine problems and Ford
had to replace my engine twice.


Best Features

The metallic green paint really holds up well.


Worst Features

The engine build in 1998 Explorer has been greatly modified. Yeah Ford!

Review

Very good vehicle. No significant problems.
It rides solid, but bumps are felt. Reliable
and no rattles. Good power (V-6), no
problems on hills. Good mileage on the road
(20-25) and about 16 in town.


Best Features

Utility & roominess comes in handy. It is also a very reliable vehicle.


Worst Features

Need to be able to close off outside air and still have the fan blow.
