1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD
Review
Purchased the car with 53,000 miles from a dealer. Within a month the transfer case was leaking which was replaced by the dealer. At 78,000 had to replace the heads due to coolant disappearing. At 82,000 unable to control the temperature, full blast heat. To fix this problem the dashboard must be taken out to get to the heater box to replace the damaged part at a cost of $1,100. The mechanic stated that this is a common problem with Ford Explorers. Terrible gas mileage; in town 14-15 mpg, highway 17-18 mpg. Owned many Fords before, this one has been the worst.
Favorite Features
It is a comfortable vehicle and spacious. You feel safe when driving it.
Suggested Improvements
Better gas mileage. Change the heater control to a more reliable setup.
