1999 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I bought it used in 1999, with 3000
miles. Great veh. for towing our boat.
But disappointed with Ford. No help
with costs of replacing auto cam chain
tensioner at 40K mi., ball joints both
sides at 60k mi.,and intake manifold
gaskets. Ford did provide new tires of
course to replace the Firestones. Why
such poor front suspention joints?


Best Features

Good tow veh.


Worst Features

Improve ball joints, engine intake manifold gaskets, etc

1999 Ford Explorer SUV XLS 4dr SUV


Review

This vehicle is not very good. It is
underpowered and has many little
problems. Everything from not being
able to keep the wheels aligned even
when dirving carefully to the rear
windshield wiper working
occasionally. The inside feels cheap
and plasticy and the resale is
absolutely horrible.


Best Features

The stereo is alright eventhough the CD player broke after about a month


Worst Features

Just do away with it, now that will be a great improvement.

1999 Ford Explorer SUV XLS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I had originally traded a mustang gt
for this because I needed more space
and the ability to get through the
snow. It ahs been a very reliable
vehicle and has never let me down or
stranded me. It has alot more room than
the grand cherokee and blazer. It has
decent power and has a decent ride
(remember its a truck not a car). I
would recomend this to anyone looking
for a reliable and trouble free four
wheel drive vehicle.


Best Features

The proven reliabilty, the vast amount of cargo room and looks nice.


Worst Features

Nothing really.

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.
