1998 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Always wanted an SUV and loved the look of the 2-Door Ford Explorer Sport. I purchased a 1998 program vehicle in Jan, 2000. I've had the heating/AC "arm assembly" replaced. I've had 3 sets of brake pads (all around) replaced this year alone. The radio LED is beginning to fade in and out. I had to replace the EGER valve...woke up one morning and the darn thing wouldn't turn over! Fog lights simply will not work for very long before having to replace. Extremely rough ride, gas mileage is horrible. Would I buy another Explorer? I don't think so.

Favorite Features

I like the exterior, does have good power, love the 4 wheel drive capablity, and CD/Cassette stereo system.

Suggested Improvements

Improve the gas mileage if possible. Clean up the ride as well. I realize it's an SUV, but a friend of mine owns a Toyota Sequoia and it drives like a dream. My Explorer can't even compare to the smooth ride of that SUV.
