I like it at 98k

1998 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV
I have had this Sport for a few
months. It's quiet powerful handles
well regardless of what anyone else
says. I've been driving full blown
Nascar racecars so I know handling.
Corners well for a short wheel-based
No fluid leaks at all, mileage 22 mpg
on the road, a/c and heat will run you
out. The rear wiper is almost useless
unless you bend it towards the glass
to get more contact.
Overall I know this a GREAT value. If
you don't need the four door don't get
it. You still get a lot of truck and
cargo area, not to metion lighter, so
better mileage and cost less.
Most of all DON'T get the 4.0 SOHC if
at all possible.
Powerful 4.0, smooth 5 speed, great
seats, quiet, roomy interior, great
power assist steering, big rear-view
mirrors, fast power windows.
The automatic tranny, rear wiper (done
on newer body styles), the vibrating
idle, bring back the Sport... a true
Sport. Lowered, exhaust, big tire
package, ya know.
