1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD

Review

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!

Favorite Features

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.

Suggested Improvements

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).
