1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


I purchased a lightly used 1999
Explorer Sport in January, 2000. Last
month, during the 60,000 service, I was
told that I needed $1,000 worth of
repairs just to pass state inspection.
This is my 2nd (and LAST) Ford
Product. The car is poorly designed,
difficult to drive, and now ...
unreliable. Consider the Explorer
a "high maintenance" automobile and
avoid it at all costs!!!

I do not drive this vehicle off road
and have always changed the oil,
rotated the tires and performed all of
the scheduled maintenance. I'm headed
back to the Hondas .. at least I know
I'll get 100,000 miles out of them with
little to no repairs.
