1992 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


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.
