1999 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV


Review

Overall this has been a good car
giving me the room and features I
needed at a good price, however I hate
the suspension which can't handle any
hill or bump at an angle. Other issues
have been rear wiper and radio LED
which both work only occasionally.


Worst Features

Install independent suspension

Review

Although I've just recently purchased
this vehilce, my parents purchased it
brand new and we have never had a
single problem other than regular
scheduled maintainance. The vehicle
has been great and I plan to drive it
until it dies which I'm sure will be
at least 200k, this is one of the 3
Fords my family owns, ( F-150, and
Taurus) I'm proud of all my fords.


Best Features

I love everything about it, stero system, one switch 4wd, very roomy, rear audio, lamps on the exterior mirrors.


Worst Features

Gas milage could be better but no real complaints.

Review

I bought it used in 1999, with 3000
miles. Great veh. for towing our boat.
But disappointed with Ford. No help
with costs of replacing auto cam chain
tensioner at 40K mi., ball joints both
sides at 60k mi.,and intake manifold
gaskets. Ford did provide new tires of
course to replace the Firestones. Why
such poor front suspention joints?


Best Features

Good tow veh.


Worst Features

Improve ball joints, engine intake manifold gaskets, etc

Review

This vehicle is not very good. It is
underpowered and has many little
problems. Everything from not being
able to keep the wheels aligned even
when dirving carefully to the rear
windshield wiper working
occasionally. The inside feels cheap
and plasticy and the resale is
absolutely horrible.


Best Features

The stereo is alright eventhough the CD player broke after about a month


Worst Features

Just do away with it, now that will be a great improvement.
