Nightmare on Ford street!
By Chiefd54 on


1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


Many problems, many recalls! Less than
six months after I purchased, one of
the plug wires went out. I had 3
recalls in the first year. Right front
bearing and trunion went out at 3 1/2
years, air conditioning control door
went out a month later. And the last
straw was replacing all of the spark
plug wires one month after the a/c
problem developed. The ride is very
stiff. Sounds and rides like a truck
(Ok its an SUV). Get the extended
warranty you will need it!

Best Features

Steering column controls for air conditioning, temperature, and cruise controls. Rear view mirror auto addjusted for high beam lights. Great cargo space. Keyless keypad entry on drivers door. Fantastic sound system

Worst Features

Imbed quality and reliability! Include some sound deadening materials to make for a quieter ride.
