1999 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


I bought this vehicle new 4 years ago,
and have mixed feelings about it. I
have a decked out 4WD version with 4.0
SOHC, 5SP Auto, leather and sunroof. I
highly recommend all of these
features. It has been an all around
good vehicle, with no major problems to
date (75000 miles). I use the 4WD for
the beach a few times a year, and
occasionsal trail use for camping, and
occasional utility trailer hauling. It
has served me very well in this

Best Features

My favorite features are the looks and feel of the vehicle, and the sunroof. It works well for beach and camping, and light trailer hauling. I use the sunroof and side wing windows alot, and like these features.

Worst Features

My primary dislikes are the rear suspension, transmission lag between foward and reverse, lack of engine torque (when towing), and interior vehicle quality (lots of squeaks and rattles), 2WD mode (not 4WD Auto), and power side wing windows (cannot reach them when driving).
