Love my Eddie Bauer!
By Rchap on
1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV
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).
Leather seating, air/stereo controls on
steering wheel, V8 engine, running
board lights, and 6 disc changer.
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.
