1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Always wanted an Explorer until I got one. Where do I start -- every little curve you make it sounds like the front end is gonna fall out. The CD player works when it wants to other times it says CD error. The radio stations change themselves. The door, after the driver's side has been opened, keeps unlocking itself. Rides like a horse & buggy. Some times all the windows will roll down. Had to replace driver side door handle two times. Driver side seat latch broke so you have to sit the same way every time you drive. Iím 5', my husband is 6'2. He was driving when it broke so very rough drive for me.

Favorite Features

Tinted windows,which I paid myself to have done. I do like the body style. I like the light under the mirror.

Suggested Improvements

Could use some improvements everywhere except the body style. Needs new radio system and fix all that embarrassing popping.
