1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

My 1999 Explorer 4WD XLT has been a good all-purpose family vehicle for mostly around-town driving, vacations and 3 cross country trips in summer and winter. The 4WD was useful for those Illinois snowstorms as well as crossing the Sierra Nevada Mts, the Ozarks gravel roads and various other places. The normal 2WD offered a fair gas mileage of about 17mpg in the city (I drive conservatively) and about 20 on the highway. Notable Interior features I likes were the dual power outlets, 6 CD changer, overhead temperature readout (outside) and compass direction (useful more than I would like to admit). The split rear fold down seats were functionally useful. Normal maintenance required only.

Favorite Features

4WD with powerful engine. Comfortable environment inside/good ride for SUV. Overhead temp/compass. 6 CD changer plus 1 in console, dual power outlets. Good cargo with split rear fold down. Good exterior styling. Keyless entry.

Suggested Improvements

2nd power outlet at feet of passenger.
