1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


I have owned this truck for a few years and it has never given me any MAJOR problems. A small electrical problem with the drivers door lock and recently replaced the vent blower moter, but other than some small normal wear'n'tear repairs, it always gets me where I need to go. 189,000+ miles and running strong.

Best Features

Reliable, and easy to perform do-it-yourself repairs on and I use the keyless entry all the time.

Worst Features

Had to replace the front driveshaft and aftermarket shafts are not built to the same quality as OEM. Too bad the price difference is $500
