Never Again!
By RLGHDAVE on
Vehicle
1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD
Review
Bought used with 25k miles. Transmission (automatic) replaced with Ford rebuilt at 80K. Now at 140K transmission is failing again! This has turned me against Ford forever. Other downers: backseats very uncomfortable, rear seat belts torture passenger, poor city gas mileage, safety concerns with tipping over if tire failure, poor towing ability (UHaul won't even rent you a trailer), rear end wants to come around on gravel roads. Owning this vehicle for nearly 6 years has convinced me that I will NEVER AGAIN buy a Ford. My next vehicle will be a Toyota or Honda.
Favorite Features
Great space in rear if you fold down seats. OK in snow. No major engine malfunctions. Interior and exterior hardware OK. Still runs after 140K miles. Fairly comfortable ride for driver.
Suggested Improvements
I consider this vehicle unsafe for a novice driver because of handling. Better suspension is needed. Also, automatic transmission is all together too gimpy!
