1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


We've had this car about five years and really had very few problems with it. We call it the 'snow beast' as its awd is fantastic in the snow. I've had a couple other 4wd trucks and this is just much more competent in poor conditions. It has the 302 V8 and can pull a trailer without complaining and is comfortable to ride in and drive. It beats you up at the pump, but it averages about 17mpg in mixed driving, so it's not much worse than your average minivan, suv, or pickup truck without awd! It beats the Jeep Cherokee I had prior to this by about 4mpg and it had the 4.0l I6 with part time 4wd,

Best Features

302 V8, steering wheel climate control & radio buttons, great AWD system, very reliable.

Worst Features

Improve gas mileage? None really. Pretty satisfied with the vehicle.
