1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV

Review

2nd Explorer to have the rear wiper die, moldings loosen, CD player and disc changer blink at 50k. Ford says, "it is no longer under warranty". Shouldn't a stock stereo not start to loose it's lighted display at 30k? Dealer couldn't fix it without "sending it out" for a month and charging me. Shouldn't it be fixed, warranty or no warranty? No, go spend $300 at local Ford authorized service center to fix the player if you want it fast. I was told there it is a "common" problem. If so, recall the darn things! The rear wiper is just a joke. Nothing else needs to be said.

Favorite Features

Great road trip vehicle, very reliable.
