Very Dependable SUV
By Starsky64 on


1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased my Explorer XLT used 7 years ago with 69k miles. It now has over 125k miles and still going strong. Very comfortable interior with durable cloth seats. I have never had any major maintenance issues with this truck. The only items that needed replacement were the two front upper control arm/ball joint assemblies. The body is still relatively rust-free considering it is now 14 years old. Very well made vehicle.

Best Features

6-disc CD player built in center console.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage from 4.0L V6.
