1998 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV AWD
Bought it 67 months ago. No major problems. The radio was replaced, but nothing else. As long as you maintain it, expect no problems. Wish it was worth something for trade in. Will probably give it to family instead of trading it for peanuts!
The V8 and AWD setup was the best drivetrain for all around performance.
Ford took care of most issues with the newest generation Explorer.
