1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD


My daily driver and has NEVER let me down because of conditions. Currently the vehicle has 335k miles and has had 1 tranny replacement at 180k miles by AAMCO it has had ball joints replaced with the kind that have grease fittings.It has had all shocks,bearings replaced an repacked and she keeps MICHELIN LTX-M/S on the vehicle and we change the oil every 5k miles and the tranny fluid every 75 ki miles. We change antifreeze every 3 years and hoses 3vry 6 years. Serpentine belt every 75k miles. rotate tires every 3rd oil change. PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE is the key to getting these vehicles to last a long time.

Best Features

Leather seats, we added heated mat to them for 25 which plugs into lighter when needed. CD player/mp3/ stereo fold split seats in rear/convertibility for hauling from Big Box stores

Worst Features

Turbo Diesel option,my gas mileage is 20mpg would like to see 30 mpg-this engine option offered in S.A and Australia Transmission gear with override automatically 2wd/4wd selector instead of AWD heated seats, power lift gate, SAT radio
