1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV
I bought my Explorer new. I have been
extremely impressed. The 5.0L V8 puts
out a good amount of power, although it
get terrible gas mileage (11mpg/16mpg).
Perfect size and very manuverable.
Comfortable on the highway, but feels
every bump in the city. Very reliable
except for on very cold days- Fords
don't like the cold. No problems until
about 60K miles. We had to replace the
sparkplugs- $200. Overall, great car
for the price.
