1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD

Review

I bought this truck right before the new model designs came out. Bad move - the resale value dropped through the floor. Other than that, this truck has been extremely reliable, especially useful in the Minnesota winters. Very fun to drive in snow, and the V8 really gets her on the highway quick. Only troubles in last 3 years were the spark plug wires had to be replaced, front washer squirters got weak, and the rear wiper stopped working temporarily.

Best Features

V8 power, and AWD control - never get stuck in this one.

Worst Features

I understand a V8 AWD will suck gas like no-ones business, but more MPG would be nice. Also, built in towing package would be good, but I believe the newer models already have that.
