1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


We bought this vehicle used and it has
performed well. We wanted a heavy
(this one weighs in at 5,000 lb)
vehicle that would be crash worthy and
weight is king of physics you know.
Drives expectedly. Opted for the V8
and AWD because you never know and who
can pass up the rumble of Ford's 302 ci
engine? It has been reliable with no
mechanical aggravation. It's clear why
there are so many on the road.
Affordable to purchase and own.

Best Features

Love the 275 ft/lbs of torque but even the V8 has to work to motivate this heavy load down the road. Good looking and nicely appointed with every option I could want.

Worst Features

Even more power (for the gear heads like me). Rear wiper isn't great. Auto climate control has been far from perfect.
