1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased new 1998- now has 60K miles
on it...no maintenance issues-
transmission is fine, everyone seems to
complain about that one on Fords- very
reliable- great creature comforts on
Eddie Bauer model. Ford replaced 4
tires and spare for free, even though
my particular tires weren't involved in
Firestone issues. Great customer
service through the whole recall issue.
Haven't even replaced brakes yet! Plan
to purchase another Ford after this

Best Features

Automatic temp control, moonroof, keypad on outside of car-can lock it while running-MACH stereo/6 cd player is terrific. Plus I think it just plain LOOKS SHARP.

Worst Features

Always wished it had third seat- which is now available. Rear suspension can get a bit jiggly, but it isn't a Town Car!
