Pros

Great reliable SUV< The 4 wheel drive works great just wish it wasnt automatic locking hubs. Very comfortable and durable interior. pretty cheap operating costs i'm getting about 18MPGs. Repair cost are very low.

Cons

Not the greatest handling thats to be expected for a 4x4 SUV. Automatic transmission would have rather had a 5speed.

A Very Useable 4wheel Drive — I actually have a had a couple of these Explorers like this and they are tanks I turned one into a monster 4x4 and thats all I did with it. This one however is the Eddie Bauer which has everything including moonroof and everything still works which is very surprising for a vehicle that is 24 years old. Im not really impressed with the powertrain I dont like the automatic tranny with the 4.0 it kills your power to the wheels. But overall a great truck would recommend to anyone.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

Power is good, handling is decent.

Cons

Poor Traction in 2wd on snowy roads.

1991 Ford Explorer 2dr Sport — Good Power delivered by the 4.0l engine and a 5 spd manual. Does not do well in snow in 2wd, but 4wd is fine. However the push button 4wd is not a great system.

Cons

Peeling paint (common problem), terrrible fuel mileage

Don't Buy One, But Gets You From Place To Place With Modest Reliability — We got this used with a blown head gasket. After numerous engine and cooling system repairs, we got it on the road and it's been running decent ever since. It gets horrible fuel mileage, but acceleration and braking are good for an SUV, its luxury features are nice, and it hasn't broken down in ages.
