1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV

Review

I LIVE IN THE REPAIR SHOP WITH THIS CAR! SO MANY RECALLS - PROBLEMS WITH BOTH FRONT AND REAR WIPERS, INTAKE VALVE, LEAKING ROOF, ALTERNATOR, TIRES AND JUST POOR PERFORMANCE. THE DEALER IS NEVER A HELP AND IT USUALLY TAKES 3- 4 VISITS TO GET A PROBLEM RESOLVED. CAN'T WAIT TILL I CAN TRADE IT IN FOR A TOYOTA!

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.

Review

Incredible enough but I have yet 2 change my rear brakes since the purchase of car in 1999. Talk about reliable! I have close to 80000 miles and I have not had a single engine problem. I rate this car a must buy, except 4 us tall guys.

1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

This was my first ford explorer. It was great for a while and then problems with the electrical and suspension started around 45k miles. The impression I got from several ford dealers was I should just expect these type of problems and the associated cost. Afer 18 months of this I decided to trade the eddie bauer in and pick up a used 4 runner (its great). Beware of the lousy resale on the explorer.

Fun to drive!

Review

I just bought it this year new. It had 74,000 miles on it. I now have about 96,000 miles on it. About 5,000 miles ago I had to have the transmission rebuilt because of the value bodies in the trans were failing. I am glad I took out the extended warr. they covered the rebuild except for the $100 deductable. If I hadnt had the warr. it would have cost me $3200. Other than the transmission the SUV has been great. I have loved driving it since I got in it in January. It has been reliable. Even when it was having tans problems, it was still going and going.

I have like my ford explorer. The only problem I have is that the lack of room when we want to go camping with 3 kids.

Disappointed overall

Review

Bought this vehicle with 9,800 miles on it at the end of the model year. It has had six recalls including Firestone tires, faulty airbag wire harness, faulty wiper wiring (wipers would turn on without warning), and two reprogrammings of control modules. Ford had to replace lower front ball- joints at 28,000 mi. under warranty. Fuel system sensor went out at 37,000 miles (car cut-off repeatedly at road speed) and Ford would not cover that. Combined with poor gas mileage in town, this is a TERRIBLE vehicle. Consumer Reports rates the 1999 Explorer as Do Not Buy because of reliability problems.
