I love my Explorer

1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought my Explorer new in 1998. It's 12 years old now and still going strong. It has never broken down or even overheated. I drove this car all over Europe when I was assigned overseas. I have to admit I'm on the forgetful side when it comes to maintenance and oil changes although I did take it the dealer a couple of times for routine fluid changes and checks. The car chassis does groan and creak sometimes now but almost everything still works. The AC is still ice cold even though I've never had it serviced that i can recall. I've never had to replace as much as a fuel pump. I love this car and won't get a new one until this one dies.

Best Features

It's American made and four wheel drive tough. Bulletproof.

Worst Features

The console lid between the driver and passenger seats broke almost immediately after buying. Still functions as an arm rest but doesn't open easily.
