1994 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV


This baby has 130,000+ miles and runs
as good as the day I bought it. Nary
a speck of rust for being exposed to
road salt every winter. Mostly rides
like a truck, but handles nice. V-6
runs smooth, but sluggish on hills.
Replaced both radial arm bushings,
breaks, shocks. Manual trany leaks a
little oil. I'm keeping it a while
longer. I hate new car payments.

Best Features

Extremely tight turning radius. Overall appearance drew me in. Seats are very comfortable and factory stereo sounds great. I like the wheel well and running board treatments.

Worst Features

Improved suspension for a softer ride. Tire jack is difficult and slow. HVAC selector could be more user friendly (ie, push buttons & dials would be easier).
