Good SUV short on "Quality is Job 1"
By hwydave on


1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


The vehicle was bought new, for the end of model year vehicle. There are some rust under the car, nothing major but annoying. The dealer won't fix under warranty since it "did not rust through" as require under the warranty criteria for repair. I order the rustproof paint through internet and took care the rust myself. The vehicle got some rattle once in a while; the dealership has been very good at fixing these "recurring" issues. The dealership service has been OK – The dealer does not know what tires are qualify under the Firestone tire replacement campaign; I know more about this issue then the dealership by simply go to the information from Ford's company website.
