Vehicle

1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Fuel pump went out at 37,000 miles, not acceptable. Dead in the driveway. Ford wanted $900 with special 4x4 tow to garage. Did it myself for $300, nasty job. Radio display bad. Rear wiper and rear electric release bad. Needs 4 shocks and brakes at 38,000. Got sucked into the SUV craze I guess, very few people actually need these vehicles. Driving 4600 lbs of detroit steel to drive work and get groceries is insane, you really can't hual any more than you can in a cars trunk and back seat.

Best Features

Moodroof in the summer and 4 wheel drive in the Snow.

Worst Features

MPG! AllSUVs should be mandated to get 20 + mpg and an extra mpg per year after that. I really wanted to support American car makers, but won't next time.
