1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Our father bought his second Explorer from my grandfather in 2005. It can get you from point A to point B, but with mediocre comfort. We use this for towing tools on a small trailer, which works great. Our car never came with the fog lights hooked up and we haven't since set them up. The dash is confusing and looks cheap, not to mention it is full of gaps. We have a CD Changer, which we don't use, the CD/Cassette/Radio/Phone set up is cool. The vehicle is fully loaded. The compass/thermometer in the overhead console is nice, but is off on the temp. Sitting in the front seems like your going to fly forward and hit your head, which I nearly did last night. Overall, this seems like a tow-truck

Favorite Features

Sunroof, rear temperature controls, roomy!

Suggested Improvements

Better quality- there are so many recalls!, better colors, for the price you expect a high finish and better electronics, Explorers don't feel safe.
