    1994 Xlt — The 1993 Ford Explorer XLT is a great truck. The preformance with the five speed is good. The cost of ownership for me has been relatively low. This car is a blast to drive on the right roads. Off roading in it is perfect

    Pros: reliable, industructable, shifts smooth

    Cons: MPG, no preformance parts

    Worked For Me — I bought this SUV used from a friend to tow my Civic race car and serve as a vehicle for snowboarding. It was beat up when I bought it for $2.5k, we put in a new motor, wheel bearings and brakes.

    Pros: good work hourse and beater up SUV

    Cons: handling and ride was rough like a truck

    True Ford Built Reliabilty In A 90's Suv! — This SUV was bought for $500 to be used a winter beater. The interior of the car was shot, having succumbed to use for work, hauling dead deer, going off-roading, and even an electrical fire. The body was not in the best shape, with the rocker panels and rear wheel wells rotting. However, with 160,000 miles on it, the 4.0L V6 and the 4 speed auto transmission kicked as strong as ever. A simple change of differential gears helped this cause, and the four wheel drive worked excellent. I also found the leather all power drivers seat (with lumber support) in this 1994 vehicle MORE comfortable than the seat in my 2001 Mustang. Funny, huh? The car handled very rough at higher speeds, due to its boxy size and its need of a front end alignment. However, it proved to be reliable (like all Fords are) in even the worst snow conditions.

    Pros: Excellent reliability, comfort

    Cons: Bulky size made for lower mpg, and harder to keep straight at higher speeds.

    Great, Reliable, Pet Friendly, Boom Boom Stereo, Low Miles And You Have To Love Ford. — Ford rocks. The interior is cloth, I would prefer leather, however the cloth is nice for my dog, for the backseat, he likes to go back and forth to the rolled down windows. Automatic windows, great handling, I only have had to use my 4 wheel drive twice this season and it was going up the canyons. Its great when there is no payments involved and everything is pretty new. Second owner.

    Pros: orig 74k miles, buddy loves it, new engine and pretty much new tranny.

    Cons: Not as fast as my mustangs.

    Big Top Heavy Suv — it's OK. feels underpowered for the size of the engine. engine also makes funny noises not unique to this vehicle but found on other cars with the same engine. nice comfy seats but overall interior is rather cheap feeling.

    Pros: seats

    Cons: GAS MILEAGE, power, cheap feel
