I owe a 1999 Ford Explorer. I love my truck. I live where it snows a lot and it rolls over all of it with no issues. I has enough room for my family and our pets. I can easily say this is the best thing I have owned. Bought with a newer motor (under 20,000 miles on it) and it says it over 224,000 miles on the truck it's self. The engine runs smooth. Starts every time. Has some cosmetic rust. But I figure that's normal. Replaced normal wear and tear items. I bought a new radio by choice. With all the bad I find the good and would buy a Ford again.
4 wheel drive
Parts are pretty easy to find
Tells me the temperature
Inside wear and tear. My middle console is ripped.
Back wiper doesn't work
Back door is Bipolar. Works when it wants to
I need to replace ball joints (were done few years ago)
Gas mileage stinks. I travel a lot.
Doors auto lock and I have to unlock them from the drivers door. I physically have to open the passengers door from the drivers side also.
What can they really do? It is an older truck and wear and tear comes with owing it. I wish it was a little bit bigger. And had heated seats.
Bought the car with 141,000 miles on it. now has 161,000 miles. have had no problems at all. does very well in the snow. I would suggest this car for anyone that lives in an area that gets a lot of snow.
I have a 1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer with a 5.0L engine and it has NEVER let me down in anyway! It had almost 200,xxx miles and its still runs and drives FLAWLESS. I wrecked it a month ago and it still runs flawless! It's unstoppable! It's an amazing suv.
Guage that displays information like MPG, miles to empty, battery/oil life etc., the big 5.0L engine, everything about it. especially the built-in subwoofer.
My daily driver and has NEVER let me down because of conditions. Currently the vehicle has 335k miles and has had 1 tranny replacement at 180k miles by AAMCO it has had ball joints replaced with the kind that have grease fittings.It has had all shocks,bearings replaced an repacked and she keeps MICHELIN LTX-M/S on the vehicle and we change the oil every 5k miles and the tranny fluid every 75 ki miles. We change antifreeze every 3 years and hoses 3vry 6 years. Serpentine belt every 75k miles. rotate tires every 3rd oil change. PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE is the key to getting these vehicles to last a long time.
Leather seats, we added heated mat to them for 25 which plugs into lighter when needed.
