Vehicle: 1999 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

Bought with less than 50K miles, overall good vehicle display went out for radio/cd about 100K miles. had to rewire some due to electrical issues. its a beast in the snow. Motor is still great, plenty of power, doesn't burn any oil at 175k miles. will replace ball joints, transmission is still going strong being original hoping to get another 25k miles out of it using it for work commute only. i could take it on a road trip, but thats why i have another ford.

For the most part, and probably since I have the extended warranty, my 99 Ltd with 4.10 LS and rear load leveling (air shocks) has served me very well over three years now. Sure, it's been in the shop, no more than my Integra, Camry or others I've had. Most problems have been with minor items dying such as the rear wiper motor (2x), rear gate shocks (2x), door locks not working from remote and front brake grinding (dealer probably over-tightened the lugs when rotating wheels). I recently replaced ALL fluids ($400US) at 40k and it runs better than new. Trust me, it works and will probably extend the life of your "Exploder".

I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am to be getting this load of junk off of my hands tomorrow. The amenities in the limited trim are very nice, the issue is that they don't last long. To name just a few...the rear wiper no longer works, the radio display is blank, the power drivers seat no longer works, right rear passenger window motor is dead, passenger seat heater is out and the cd player is hit or miss. After all of these years one would have to believe that sooner or later, Ford will finally get it. Trading in on a Honda Pilot tomorrow morning...can't wait.
