1996 Ford Explorer from North America
Okay vehicle, but crap for gas
The radiator was leaking.
The oil was leaking.
The check engine sensor, crap, It's always on, and there's nothing wrong with the engine.
The leather seats have worn badly, the passenger seat's stitching is coming out.
The back doors are incredibly hard to open.
Back window constantly falls off the track.
Numerous break downs that are from an unknown cause, causing me and my friends to walk crazy distances.
It's a nice vehicle, very roomy, and really comfortable.
I live in Canada so snow is a big deal; it's AWD and has amazing control over ice and snow. The heater works amazing, but the defrost, not so much.
Basically I feel really safe in this vehicle, although I've had it for 5 months, and it has been in the shop more than with me.
The stock speakers are very impressive, very loud and lots of good bass. Although the rear seat audio control gets annoying for the driver when people are constantly changing a good song. There should be some way to turn that off.
The acceleration sucks, and it governs out at 160, but at 120 starts mad shaking.
Overall it's a nice vehicle, if you can afford the gas. It's $80 to fill, and that lasts me maybe 3 days?
None the less, my SUV is still my baby.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
