1998 Ford Explorer XL 4dr SUV

Review

I have about 39,000 miles on my Ford Explorer. Got it for around $22k brand new. I don't drive it often for the gas mileage reasons but when I first got it I was ecstatic. However, I wish I have the new 2002 version now. I haven't hit the mileage that most of the people are experiencing problems but I know it's inevitable. Supposely the "better" Explorers become Mercury Mountaineers while the crummy ones remain Ford Explorers.

Best Features

Well, mines wasn't loaded but... I like the foldable back row seat. The seats are pretty comfortable. Sound system isn't bad.

Worst Features

Smoother ride. I hear that you can replace the shocks on the explorer with Edsel something ones that dramatically improve handling. I also hear that with the stock shocks, going off-road will damage your vehicle. This vehicle really needs a third row seat.
