1999 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

This is a fun car to drive. It's 4wd performance (on the beach and on back roads) is excellent, even with not very aggressive tire tread. Even highway performance is pretty good. Only complaint is that ride tends to yaw too much, but this isn't surprising for a relatively short wheelbase car. All in all, the title says it.


Best Features

Off road performance Good sound system


Worst Features

Take some of the yaw out of the ride.

1999 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

I love the Explorer. For the most part no major problems, knock on wood, just little things here and there. Nice performance, pretty good handling considering, and great look.


Best Features

I drive a sport and the possibilities are endless. very customizeable.


Worst Features

I would like to see a sportier v6. Perhaps one with DOHC and more HP. I'd like to see the Sport come with a option for a V8.

Review

This has been a reliable family vehicle. The only problems with it were covered under warranty. We are extremely happy with the Battlefield Ford of Manassas, VA for all our service work.


Worst Features

The cup holders are poorly designed and located. The were re-designed in newer models.
