Vehicle1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV
ReviewMy 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.
