1999 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV


Review

Great truck, but the gas around the city is crazy. I was spending 80 bucks a week just for daily commute. Bought the truck with a brand new transmission, and everything worked great. Hated to sell the thing but I cant live with paying that much..

Review

Very comfortable, most reliable vehicle my family has ever owned. Around 20 mpg which is good. I rolled it on a gravel and completly destroyed it. Me and 4 friends walked out of the ditch with just bruises and a couple cuts. INCREDIBLE build quality. Definatly one of Ford's best vehicles. Would buy another in a heartbeat.


Best Features

Room, kleenex outlet on center council, engine and transmission combo. Flawless 4x4. Strong build design.


Worst Features

Better mileage. but i'm not gonna complain about the 20 mpg at all. Lower center of gravity

Review

Bought it in May with 120,000 miles on it. Drives great. Love the truck. Had three small problems with it and one huge one. The rear wiper has stopped working, the drivers door handle broke off, and the drivers lock keeps getting stuck. The huge problem was at 130,000 miles the transmission started to go. Wouldnt shift into 3rd gear smoothly anymore. Currently replacing the Transmission as I type this. Even with these problems i love the truck. does everything i ask it to do.


Best Features

The AWD-4WD. Ride height.


Worst Features

Beware of the 1999 ford transmissions. the silonid in the tranmissions tend to go into shutdown mode.

Review

Ok well we got our exploder bout 3 years ago with only 56,000 miles on it and as of today there is over 171,000 miles on it and with the exception of the tranny the car runs great.... i never thought i would ever own a ford.


Best Features

the ouside temp gage, and the fact that it has a 4.0 litter V-6 which will get out of its own way.


Worst Features

fuel economy, and suspention.
