1998 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

After buying Vehicle @ 40,000 Miles, Dealer Was terrible. I gave them the Check and was told that there was only 1 Key and they wanted $65.00 for key and programing. Engine makes a noise I never heard before it sounds like the engine is rattling after you restart engine when it is warmed up. Noise Goes away as quick as it comes. V=6 SOHV is under powered for towing and 5 speed trans. is ok when it shifts. The Best Part of a ford is the transmission as they Shifts smooth unlike the G.M's. Lack of Torgue. It does have a Good turning radius. Feels like the Rear wheels stop before the body,Need I say any More???

Favorite Features

Nice Ride, Smooth Shifting Transmission and Great Stereo!

Suggested Improvements

Better Dealer training and from my experence the 3 dealers I visited, should learn to listen to what the customer is saying instead of making excuses. It's no wonder the Japanese cars are taking the market over. Needs better Milage but would trade for better reliability!
