1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Replaced ball joints at 25,000 miles and again at 90,000. Radio stopped displaying at 60,000. Problems too numerous to mention. Gas mileage started at around 17 city is now down to 10-12 city and 15 hwy, and that's driving like a granny. Put more work into this truck before 90,000 than any other vehicle I've owned. Trading it off soon, good riddance!

Best Features

VERY comfortable interior, all controls are easy to reach and find. Seats are super comfy and roomy. Tons of room for stroller, sports equip, etc. in back. Wish I could find a new one this driver friendly!

Worst Features

Ford, please do something about the gas mileage and ROLLOVER RATINGS! Come on, Ford, catch up to the other guys!
