Maybe we just didn't get lucky

1995 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


I like the car as far as the
interior goes, but we have had many
mechanical problems. The main thing
we replaced was the transmission. Even
now, there is a delay when we change
gears from park and nearly every time
the car shifts, a thud comes from
underneath the car. There is short in
the switch for washer fluid. The
automatic A/C doesn't work very well
(your either cold or warm, not much of
a middle). When idiling, the car will
sometimes shake and shut off. Lots of
squeaks and rattles. The ride is also
very bumpy. Carfax says there is
nothing fishy with its history, and we
had it checked by a Ford dealership
mechanic before we bought it. What

Best Features

I like the auto-dimming rear view mirror and the power mirrors, windows, and seats. Enough cargo room as well, especially since the back seats fold down. The controls for everything are fairly well placed.

Worst Features

The A/C does not work very well for an in between temp, great for cold and warm, but not really cool. Build quality does not seem to be fantastic. The radio and some other displays have burnt out. Bumpy ride.
