1992 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought my '92 XLT 4X4 about 8 years ago with about 50k miles on it. It has been by far one of the most reliable vehicles I've ever owned. It has never It has never left me stranded. It is also a very capable off-road vehicle. I have been on countless Arizona back roads through mud, snow and silt. It plows through with no problems.

Best Features

Interior room - large people ride comfortably in the back seat. This can't be said about Toyotas and Nissans with back seats designed for children. Durable Iinterior. It still looks like new after a wash.

Worst Features

Seat belts are too high...they creep up your neck which is annoying. Engine is underpowered. I overcame some of this by installing a SuperChip. Arm rest support brackets break too easily. Exterior door handles flop around when an internal spring breaks.
