Will Never buy a Ford again
By Disatisfied Explorer on


1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


I have owned my Explorer for 5 years;
it only has 61K miles. In the past
year I have spent $4,000 in repair
bills that were not covered by warranty
They include replacing the following
(1) the front drive shaft; (2) the air
ride control module, not to mention the
4 times I took it to the dealer because
the warning light kept coming back on;
(3) a front shock; (4) the O2 sensor;
(5) the solenoid; (6) the rear pinion,
axle and carrier bearings; and (7) the
rear pinion seal,twice. This is worst
vehicle I have ever owned!

Worst Features

Do away with the Air ride system. Add a recirculating feature the heating/air system.
