1998 Ford Explorer XL 4dr SUV


It's almost a year later since my last review. I have a true love hate realtionship with this car. I love its reliability but hate driving a ten year old car. Overall, I've gotten my money's worth out of it. I now have almost 170,000 miles on it and this year have only had to buy tires and an altenator besides the regular matinence of course. I drive about 40 miles to and from work M-F. Everything's working on the car right now and has all year. It still starts without applying gas and can keep up in the fast lane. Plan to keep it until the wheels roll off (I'd feel wasteful buying one if not necessary). At this rate I'll be driving it until I'm ready for retirement (in about 25 years!)

Best Features

It's still running. Every feature still works. Comfortable ride. Plenty of room for cargo. I feel safe in it.

Worst Features

Better quality interior parts. Looks and feels cheap, yet has held up relatively well.
