1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD

Review

We bought this vehicle used and it has performed well. We wanted a heavy (this one weighs in at 5,000 lb) vehicle that would be crash worthy and weight is king of physics you know. Drives expectedly. Opted for the V8 and AWD because you never know and who can pass up the rumble of Ford's 302 ci engine? It has been reliable with no mechanical aggravation. It's clear why there are so many on the road. Affordable to purchase and own.

Favorite Features

Love the 275 ft/lbs of torque but even the V8 has to work to motivate this heavy load down the road. Good looking and nicely appointed with every option I could want.

Suggested Improvements

Even more power (for the gear heads like me). Rear wiper isn't great. Auto climate control has been far from perfect.
