1993 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV


Bought this sport SUV for my daughter
but learned to like it. Overall it has
been reliable with some problems that
others have noted: inside door handle
broke off, gas gauge broke at 60K, air
vents are shoddy, FM cassett died at
100K. Only big repair has been 5 speed
tranmission- shifting 1-2 grinds!!
Repaired but grinds again! Important to
change trans fluid and use the RIGHT
Stability better with big tires, no
air bags scare me. OK for running
chores but don't like using it on the

Best Features

Comfortable seating (cloth), good space use, nice exterior paint job.

Worst Features

Much has been done already since this is a 93. But sturdier interior door handles and ..Ford, get your act together on gas gauges!! This is my second Ford, got em 15 years apart, and still the same crappy gas gauge!
