1999 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV 4WD


Purchased the car three years ago with about 60K miles. I loved the car and am just now hearing "whining" noises ... feel a little slippage from the transmission between 2nd and 3rd gears. Contemplating whether to fix the transmission or trade it in. I do love having an suv, sun roof, etc. It's roomy and I like the looks -- it also handles well in the winter. Until now, I've loved owning it and had no problems. However, it appears I have a transmission issue at this point and I'm not sure whether to replace transmission or not. Overall, I've enjoyed owning it. It did have relatively high mileage when I purchased it. Exterior and interior remains great.

Best Features

Sunroof, and roominess.

Worst Features

Improve interior design, work on transmission functionality.
