1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I drive this to work all week. Pull our boat all summer and haul my hockey player all over Wisconsin in the winter. The Ford Explorer is by far the best SUV out there.

Best Features

I really like the comfortable seats and the way it handles. The a/c and heat are fantastic. The 4WD is great in the snow and for those times when I have to take it off-roading.

Worst Features

The rocker panel on the right rear will rust out over time after 10 years of road salt eats at it, the rest of the vehicle is rust free after 11 Wisconsin winters.
