1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Some minor things have gone wrong but
the dealership has replaced and
repaired with no problems. I have this
unusual smell coming from the air vents
during the summer. I tried to have the
dealer find the source but it seems to
be water condensation from the A/C and
they sprayed it with air freshener but
it stinks REAL BAD after, so suggest
NOT doing that!!! Other than that, It's
been a great truck for my wife but we
have since upgraded to a new MDX for
the upgraded creature comforts. I'll
use this for hauling and commuting to

Best Features

Seems pretty safe at the height as we were hit broadside and the car's bumper partially slipped under the door frame instead of through it where my son was sitting.

Worst Features

Better ride, still feels like truck. More leg room, If the A/C condensation is a fact and not just something made up by TWO dealers then find the resolution and do a better job at getting rid of the excess water.
