1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV

Review

Have owned the vehicle for almost 2.5 yrs and it is as pleasurable to drive today as it was on day one. The V8 engine has plenty of oomph and gas mileage has been better than expected (15 city/18 hwy). The brute force of the engine and luxurious styling and features make the vehicle very versatile. Even though it is 4x2, I have taken it off road in the Arizona desert and it performed fine. So far, have not had any problems except for a minor electrical glitch with the wipers that was promptly fixed. Also, replaced the Firestone tires, even though I really liked them and didn't think it was necessary (dealer really pushed to replace on a maintenance visit).

Favorite Features

Leather seating, air/stereo controls on steering wheel, V8 engine, running board lights, and 6 disc changer.

Suggested Improvements

The vent seems to suck in exhaust from other cars. Could use a filtration system, however this is not a problem with the AC on.
