I Love My Truck!!! — When I moved from Florida to Pennsylvania I was told I SHOULD get rid of my Honda and get a 4WD vehicle. I traded my 97 Honda for my 92 Explorer. Ball joints were bad but expected. Very little rust even in the Northeast!!! Starts and runs great everytime I turn the key. 4WD handles even the iciest winter!!! I am and always will be a Ford girl!!!

The exhaust pipe routing around the transmission bellhousing.

Good Vehicle To Own. — Vehicle has great acceleration, braking, handling, and ground clearance. Have had some minor repairs done (Water pump, Clutch, and Head Gaskets) but should be expected since vehicle has over 200,000 miles on it. Still has original interior with exception of divers seat (Replaced only do to seat back broke). Very reasonable cost of ownership. Very fun to drive on and off the road.

Love The '92 Ford Explorer Xlt. — Mean Machine for long trips. Made it in no time from Wash DC to Orlando, overnight, fully loaded. Cost effective to maintain and operate. Loved the manual transmission! Very spacious. Super cold AC. Awesome turning radius. I would buy one again!

Pros

Great off road ability, takes quite a beating without much problem.

Cons

Not the best ride quality in the world, fuel economy is only so-so for a V6

Great Off-road Brute, This Suv Is At Home In The Mud — This SUV has lasted well past its sell-by date, but I have kept it for the reason to restore it and make it an off-road brute thats ready to tackle the trail. You can give the SUV quite a beating and expect it to start right back up the next day without too much problem. The styling on this SUV screams take me off road so i can get dirty. The car looks way better covered in mud and dirt than clean and fresh. You can not have fun in this SUV if you keep it on the road at all times.

Pros

Sounds amazing with muffler delete and 2.5 in tailpipe. Turns heads when they hear this coming and the look on peoples faces is great when they realize its this exlpoder making the noise.

Cons

Handling sucks, especially if you try to drive it like a sports car. Electronic 4 wheel drive system is CRAP.

Relible, Cheap, And Fun To Drive. — With the 5 speed manual transmission this truck is fun to drive. The perfomance of the 4.0 v6 is pretty good, it gets up and goes, but isnt amazing. Depending on driving habits I was able to get about 22 mpg. Easy to work on and parts are pretty cheap.

I Won't Sell It Either Cause All The Problems Can Be Fixed... I Even Like The Style. — I love this truck. It was cheap, it runs great, even with small mechanical problems it still toughs through. Leaking anti-freeze AND oil, all i have to do is keep it full and it starts everytime. 4.0 V6, plenty of power, although a 302 would have been a lot better.

Pros

4x4 with this is AWESOME in the winter, decent power, really easy to manuever around.

Cons

Boxy look, Rocker panels love to rust away...

Awesome Winter Truck! — Performance- Decent for a tank. Not a blazing rocket but has pretty good power for it's size. Handling is little to be desired of though, braking is good. Build Quality- Solid SUV, 307km and still trucking! It does squeek a little and working on the engine is a complete PITA. Appearance- It's a boxy generic looking SUV, Not much, else to say. Cost of Ownership- Fuel Mileage is great considering 4x4 is on for more than 1/2 of its time on the road with me. I have had to replace the intake gasket, front brakes, and 1 fuel injector that didnt work. Fun Factor- Don't drive it in anything other than snow, but it is AMAZING in the snow and has never gotten stuck. Great traction and plows through huge snow banks with no issues. Great for a winter beater!
