1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


My wife has a 1999 2d 4wd Sport model.
Like most for cars/trucks, this thing is
a piece of junk. The overall build
quality is poor. The plastics inside are
low grade quality and the vehicle
reliability is terrible. She has had the
airbag go out, and needed major work on
the engine. At 35,000 miles over $4,500
in repair work on the engine needed to
be performed.

Driving the Explorer is a nightmare,
with uncomfortable seats and ride.
We are looking into trading this in and
getting something more reliable, like a
Honda CR-V.

I'm still amazed the people spend
$30,000+ thousand on any Ford product.
They are over priced and of poor quality.

Start over and build something reliable.
