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.
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.
Go back to the leaner smaller style.
No more over kill on sz. the river is
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.
Four wheel drive when the "Exploder"
running, it'll plow through any snow,
mud, whatever... I do like the trunk
space, I could haul anything, and
overall appearance is nice.
Recall, recall, recall. Please Ford,
start being honest and stand behind
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.
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!!
Pretty good sound system for stock.
very comforatble seats
