1992 Ford Explorer XL 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

I owned a new 4dr '93 Eddie Baurer 4 x
4 w/ the works. It was to big for me. I
got a '95 2dr. 4x4 xlt. Nothing fancy
but reliability & handling has been
wonderful. These vehicles are just the
right height & sz. for handling and to
put in the garage.

My vehicle
will die before I give it up. I am like
where's Waldo, I mountain bike so this
vehicle is loaded and unloaded many
times a wk. It is off road alot and it
has always worked for me. Guess what
I'm a lady owner.


Worst Features

Go back to the leaner smaller style. No more over kill on sz. the river is down.

Review

Not only to I agree with the above
review citing TRANSMISSION problems,
but I was recently informed that after
about 100,000 miles the head has a
tentancy to crack due to poor
manufacturing. Repairs for this are
over $3000, and this was on top of a
transmission problem last year and a
fuel injection probelm costing over
$400 the year before. I rated the
confort as fair, that is, when the
seat was not falling backward due to a
broken screw so far within the seat,
it woudl need to be replaced to fix
the problem. If you're thinking of
buying an Explorer, any year, please
look at a Pathfinder or a Toyota.


Best Features

Four wheel drive when the "Exploder" is running, it'll plow through any snow, mud, whatever... I do like the trunk space, I could haul anything, and overall appearance is nice.


Worst Features

Recall, recall, recall. Please Ford, start being honest and stand behind your product.

Review

My wife purchased it in '92, and I
begain driving it in '99 when we met.
It had a tranny rebuild at 94K miles
(has 114K now), but I hear that's
typical. Performance improved when the
Air Flow Meter was cleaned (not
replaced) recently. We just drove it
1000 miles from LA to Utah and back,
120+ degrees in the desert, A/C
blasting, stereo cranked, loaded with
camping gear, ran cool & smooth.


Best Features

Reliability.


Worst Features

Better V6, 16-inch wheels.

Review

I have a 92' explorer spory 4x4 and I
love it. I just bought it with under
74000 miles. The only things I have
noticed that arent really a big deal
arethe engigne is a little weak and The
A/C doesnt work and it needs a new
power steering pump soon. Not really a
big deal but hey, what do you expect
from an 11 year old car!!! I LOVE IT!!


Best Features

Pretty good sound system for stock. very comforatble seats


Worst Features

NEEDS MORE POWER!!!!!!!
