I'd buy another (but not a V8)

1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD
My '98 Eddie Bauer is a great vehicle.
It hauls all I need it to, has proven
to be reliable and looks great. The
features on this truck have spoiled me
(power everything, auto headlights,
steering wheel controls, push button
entry, great stereo, etc.) The V8 is
very strong whether you're hauling or
playing with some kid in a Honda
Civic. I recommend it to someone
looking for a TRUCK based SUV!
The overall package is great, but the
little things make it stand out....Push
button entry on door, versatility of
interior space and go anywhere platform.
If I had it to do over again I'd
probably get the V6 and not the V8.
Although maybe not because I love the
AWD and it is only available with the
V8. Gas mileage is my biggest regret
(13/14 city & 18 highway).
