"After 334,000 miles there are 5 issues 1. Check Engine Light - Transmission codes but the car still drives very well 2. Heater blend door - Stuck on high heat unless Max a/c is used and then blows nice and cold 3. Drivers power door lock doesn't work correctly 4. ABS light on - the right front ABS sensor wire fell off the mount and rubbed on the CV boot causing a failure on that sensor 5. Left turn signal switch doesn't work properly. you have to hold it in place. After 334,000 miles how can we complain. I am trying to sell it now after my wife bought a new car last week but this thing has never left her stranded. We have changed several parts over the years but with some know-how and good tools there was nothing I couldn't take care of at home in the driveway. Intake gaskets were the biggest job we did a couple of years ago. If you can find one of these with low miles and need an SUV I highly recommend it. Probably one of the best years for Ford Explorers."

"I cannot speak highly enough of this vehicle. It took care of me for 12 years flawlessly and has carried my daughter for the past 6. No major repairs in the 18 years. Replaced the Water pump and Alternator at 200000 not because they failed, just because they hit 200K."

"We bought it in 98, it had 17,000 miles on it. It is still good looking, and is just the best, most trouble free car we've ever owned. Our trusted mechanic, last 25 years, friend and fellow parishoner, has advised us to sell it,right now, while we still can: apparently it's not supposed to live this long...go figure."

"I purchased this car new in 1996 and it never let me down or stranded me anywhere. It drives great on the interstate but rides a little bumpy around town. Love the moon roof and it has never leaked. I had do some fancy driving a few times to avoid someone pulling out in front of me and it held its ground when I swerved on a dime. I now own a 2013 Ford Explorer and love it also."
