1998 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

I teh SUV used with 58,000 miles on it. I had to replace the breaks and rotars at 65K, replace the original battery at 75K and at 80K I needed new ball joints. The stereo system is junk. The CD player shorted out 5 months after I bought it and there is a loose connection some where in the wire running to the rear speakers which causes them work about 25% of the time. I have driven it about 400 mile from Boston to Rochester, NY about 10 times now (3 times with a full cargo bed) and and very pleased with the truck. I'm just worried to see what is going to go wrong in another 10,000 miles.

Favorite Features

on the fly 4WD, good amount of cargo space, looks great, turning radius is phenominal

Suggested Improvements

get a stereo system that works, fix your problems with the ball joints (it seems to be a trend on all of your trucks)
