1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


Review

Got my 99 explorer in febuary of 2013 with only 97**** miles and now towards the end of 2015 with 104*** still running strong with the 5.0 engine. Plenty of room for my wife and 2 kids and you wouldnt believe how much stuff we hauled with this,better then a pickup. Truck has been very reliable with the only maintenence done to it has been buying a new set of tires when got it,got rear and front brakes replaced and one time car did not start thought it was the starter had it checked out wasn't the problem,turned out to be the pulley that wasn't allowing it to crank replaced and nothing since. Got a MagnaFlow exhaust which makes it sound beasty,I leave Hondas in the dust! See other reviews of them pushing to 200*** plus miles and taking care of this bad boy hoping to keep em around to get him there.

Review

This is a great SUV. Purchased it after getting tired of my sedan. I love the visibility and safety. The ride is comfortable, the seats feel like I'm sitting on a sofa. When I retire this one I will buy another!


Best Features

Two-tone paint, running boards & lights, comfortable seats, auto lights, controls on steering wheel, 6 disc changer, visibility, gas mileage not bad for a larger SUV.


Worst Features

Better placement of rear view mirror.

Review

i bought this vehicle with 12000 miles,
needed new engine after 19000 miles,
have 37000 currently and it already
needs a new engine, i use mobile one
full sythetic oil with wix filter, and
run fuel cleaner every 4000 miles, and
the engine is already breaking down.
The tranny is also slipping while
driving.


Best Features

received new tires thanks to the firestone ordeal.


Worst Features

better quality control, engine could use little more power.

Review

Have owned the vehicle for almost 2.5
yrs and it is as pleasurable to drive
today as it was on day one. The V8
engine has plenty of oomph and gas
mileage has been better than expected
(15 city/18 hwy). The brute force of
the engine and luxurious styling and
features make the vehicle very
versatile. Even though it is 4x2, I
have taken it off road in the Arizona
desert and it performed fine. So far,
have not had any problems except for a
minor electrical glitch with the wipers
that was promptly fixed. Also, replaced
the Firestone tires, even though I
really liked them and didn't think it
was necessary (dealer really pushed to
replace on a maintenance visit).


Best Features

Leather seating, air/stereo controls on steering wheel, V8 engine, running board lights, and 6 disc changer.


Worst Features

The vent seems to suck in exhaust from other cars. Could use a filtration system, however this is not a problem with the AC on.
