1998 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV


I have had this Sport for a few
months. It's quiet powerful handles
well regardless of what anyone else
says. I've been driving full blown
Nascar racecars so I know handling.
Corners well for a short wheel-based
No fluid leaks at all, mileage 22 mpg
on the road, a/c and heat will run you
out. The rear wiper is almost useless
unless you bend it towards the glass
to get more contact.
Overall I know this a GREAT value. If
you don't need the four door don't get
it. You still get a lot of truck and
cargo area, not to metion lighter, so
better mileage and cost less.
Most of all DON'T get the 4.0 SOHC if
at all possible.

Best Features

Powerful 4.0, smooth 5 speed, great seats, quiet, roomy interior, great power assist steering, big rear-view mirrors, fast power windows.

Worst Features

The automatic tranny, rear wiper (done on newer body styles), the vibrating idle, bring back the Sport... a true Sport. Lowered, exhaust, big tire package, ya know.
