1994 Ford Explorer XL 4dr SUV 4WD


I have been nothing but happy with my 94 XL V6 Explorer. Take care of it and it will take care of you. Great in the snow, on the beach, or in the mud. She has 148,000 miles on her and she runs like a champ. I've never had any problems although I have heard about transmissions going out after 100,000 miles so I changed all the fluid in the tranny, and the torque converter when I hit that mark. I will probably change it out every 4th or 5th oil change (which I do every 3,000 miles like clockwork) from here on out.

Best Features

Comfortable, durable, nice ride,plenty of room for gear of any sport or hobby, ie snowboarding, golfing, dirt bike riding, wakeboarding, etc.

Worst Features

gas mileage is not the greatest, but its an SUV, you don't buy them for gas mileage, you buy them to haul people, things, or tow stuff
