Does A Lot Of Things Well
By Dave Madrid on

Vehicle

1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Although my Explorer has had minor powertrain repairs, they occurred during the 6y/75K extended warranty. My other complaint is the driver's side seat recliner lever which was placed in a terrible location. It has broken off since every time you exit the vehicle, you hit the lever with your left leg. Other than the lever, I love my Explorer because it still does a lot of things well.

Best Features

Ability to drive 90mph comfortably for hours, turn onto snow covered 2-lane with the shift-on-the-fly 4x4, and have plenty of room inside.

Worst Features

MOVE THE SEAT RECLINE LEVER!
