I bought a 1993 Ford Explorer from my brother. He recycles vehicles. I drove this one, I thought it ran too good to just be cut in peices and recycled. Boy was I right!!!.. Don't even know how many miles this thing actually have. But I know it has lots more to go!!! Took it for a 3000 mile road trip!! Up the Rocky Mountains.. No problems!! Noticed it climed hills better with midgrade or premium gas.. I gotta fix the 4x4.. But I still take it camping in the mountains.. Hasn't got stuck yet!! Looking to replace the clutch and water pump pretty soon.. She is such a good car for so little money.. So capable of doing so much.. So roomy on the inside.. My 6'1 son rode in the back seat on the road trip.. He said it was very comfortable.. I've basically done routine maintenance.. Replaced tires.. And made it legal to drive again.. I use the Good stuff on an oil change, and some 50 weight.. She is such a good vehicle!!!
I have a 1994 xlt, my dad bought it new the same year i was born an now i have it. its got 185,400 miles on it an still runs strong as ever.other than a few performance mods, the only money spent in parts was just for maintenance. its used for off-road an pulling an yet still is an excellent vehicle. an its the exact same color asthe one in the picture. brilliant blue.
I bought this Explorer Sport 4x4 new, in January,1993. It is a 5speed stick with manual 4x4 hubs, and has over 240,000 original miles. Still going strong with the original , untouched engine and transmission. Two radiators, two clutches, recalled rear door plungers, one windshield, three sets of front rotors, a leaking transmission, and leak at the intake manifold are all this Ford has required in it's life. It is still used for heavy off-road, and just last summer, pulled a 16 ft car trailer and 1972 Corvette over 1200 miles, with no problems (except a bit underpowered on the hills). Take care of the maintenance, and the car will take care of you.
i bought a 93 eddie bauer 2 dr great suv overall but it had 167000 on it, i have rebuilt than tranny but that was at around 170*** had the break pads done at the same time now i am doing them again at 198*** the valve covers are starting to leak but that is at almost 200*** engine is still very strong
I've had my Explorer for 15 years and it currently has over 276,000 miles. It still runs great. Got to say that I've gotten my money's worth out of this one!
