Hi im new to the message board, Im thinking of buying a ford explorer but i want some opinions first like what would be a good year im looking for a 95-98 max because it's as much as i can afford!

What model should i look for, im interested in performance rather than off road use. what trim should i look for,what options youd i look for and which one's shouldnt i look for the ones that have given u problems maybe.

I hade a 1991 EB 4x4 4.0 i sold it a year and a half ago, i bought a chevy<---forgive me, i will never buy a chevy again especialy a car just problems oh well.

so what do u think! plz let me know what u guys would if u were gona buy your X all over again what would u get and what wouldn't u?

Thanks

pol23_98,
Welcome to the site. I hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of us do.
Well, if you are looking for performance, then you should get a 5 liter V8, look at the 97-98 models.

Since you want performance, get a '97+ Sport with the SOHC V6 engine. The engine has about the same performance stats as the V8, but is a whole lot lighter. The Sport option makes it a 2 door and will make it that much more lighter.
