I hate Ford. No more American cars.

1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


This car was great until around 50,000 miles when the transmission started acting up. It surges between 2nd and 3rd gears. It still works with no repair but still surges. I can deal with that. But now at 65,000 miles I had to have the intake gasket replaced at a cool $1,000! I was even sort of ok with that; but now the 4WD HIGH and LOW lights are flashing. I am sick of trouble codes with this SUV!!! I knew I shouldn't have given up my Camry. Why can't American car makers build a reliable car like the Japanese?

Best Features

I like the room and the ride. I would have no problems whatsoever if the car worked reliably. I like the trucky ride and expected the gas mileage. The seats are comfortable enough too. It handles great off road.

Worst Features

MAKE IT WORK! I paid it off two years early and have nothing but repairs since. I would get rid of it if I wouldn't lose so much in doing so.
