1999 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV


Review

I've put on two kayaks and stuffed the back full of camping gear. At 88,000 miles, it's always started when I turned the key.


Best Features

When I step on the gas, it gooooeeess! I love the interior design on this earlier model. Easy to keep clean vs. later models with more spots to catch dust.


Worst Features

The drive belt is still noisy when cold - even after a recall replacement part.

Review

I used to own a Saturn and I must say, buying my 1999 explorer was the best move I've made. Not only is 4x4 and quicker then my saturn, but I feel safer in it and it drives great.

Review

First of all this SUV is loaded with virtually everything you can put on one. I love this vehicle. I have large, but not illegal, Michelin tires on it. I can see all that is occurring a long distance ahead of me. I am 6' 3" tal and weight 230 Lbs. and I am comfortable in the vehicle, except I cant wear a hat. This is one of the nicest and safest vehicles I have ever owned. I have only 45,000 mile on it, and there is hardly a mark on it anywhere inside or out.


Best Features

Ease of shifting to 4WD, and audio system with CD changer and heighth of the vehicle.


Worst Features

None

Review

I was getting out of a 98 Mustang when I got this suv. It hasn't failed me except for once. I don't have too many complaints except for the driver's seat has broken, the rear windshield wiper doesn't work, and the middle console broke easily. It gets crappy gas mileage of about 14 city and 20 hgwy. I like my Explorer, but I don't love it.

Review

After buying the Explorer with 18k miles, we have had nothing but problems. 3 sets of front hubs, 4 fuel pumps, vapor locked twice, 2 sets of brakes, starter, the list goes on. I will not bore you with all the details. The worst thing about it, the resale price drops so fast that I can't even get rid of it for a decent price (what I owe)! I will never own another Ford product!!!!


Best Features

Interior seating comfort


Worst Features

Reliability, gas mileage, etc. Basically, just start over.
