"This is a luxury, top of the line Eddie Bower, Ford Explorer in excellent condition for a 1999 automobile. No smokers, no dogs. Tires are only 18 months old. Has never had any engine problems. Owner has maintained auto regularly - oil changes, new shocks, rotors, and breaks in last 3 years. Body and interior in perfect condition except for a small dent on right front bumper. Great driving in the mountains, getting 20 miles per gallon. A good city car too, using only 14 miles per gallon. When bought mileage at 13500, now only at 172 since 2012. These cars are known to last forever!"

this car is a very good car,and reliable.

"Vehicle runs well, the SOHC 4.0, has sufficient power to handle long distance driving. I would consider buying another explorer with this same engine."

Pros: "Reliable, looks great, Eddie Bauer features"

Cons: "Not too economical, but it does have a V8"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"We purchased our 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer in 1999 when it had about 1,000 miles on it. It now has about 188,000 miles and is still going strong. The CD player and clock stopped working years ago, but we have experienced no major problems. The exterior and interior still look fantastic. The AWD served us well in the winter when we lived in Montana. On a long drive it is more comfortable than my wife's Cadillac CTS. We love the extra room when grocery shopping or going to the nursery. I never want to part with our reliable, faithful friend!"
