1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD
Review
My wife and I have owned this truck for several years and have about 90k miles on it now. It has been very reliable and easy to maintain. I had the the ball joints replaced at about 70k miles, as the steering seemed slightly vague on-center. That cured the problem completely. I also had the EGR valve replaced at about 75k miles, and I had one of the chips in the ignition key quit working one time, which required a new key. Aside from those three problems, it has been a joy to own. With the 302 V8, the fuel economy is about what you'd expect (14 city/18 hwy) but the AWD is fantastic in the snow. I've owned 4WD pickups and the Explorer is much more capable. I would recommend this vehicle.
Favorite Features
Interior space, powerful engine, reliable electronics, decent brakes, trailer pulling capability
Suggested Improvements
Drivers seat could move back farther for taller drivers, slightly heavier springs in back end.
