Nice truck!
By JDP on


1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


I have put 15K miles on it, used.
Good: Love the look, shines up well. No
breakdowns or reliabiliy concerns.
Interior is comfortable (Im 6'4), great
seats! Easy to mod (grill guard,
stereo). Good offroad/bad wx. Strong
Bad: Poor gas mileage (bad as a V8 in
city). Ride is rough unless smooth
road (good shocks and tires help).
Strange sounds from random places.
Needs check-up often to replace poor
OEM parts. Ding-magnet (Ive gotten 5
nice dings).
Overall, I like the truck and the pros
outweigh the cons. Find a low mileage
model, an extended warranty (havent
needed it), and have it checked by a
good mechanic. I give the truck a 7.

Best Features

Tough look, strong engine, sunroof, big tires.

Worst Features

Better gas mileage, better suspension (the new IRS on the 2003s is what this one SHOULD be).
