Vehicle1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewBought 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.
Best FeaturesAuto-track 4WD.
Worst FeaturesBuild a vehicle that will last longer than $15,000 miles and get better than 14 mph around town.
