1994 Ford Explorer XLT

I’m selling my 1994 Explorer with 63,030 miles. How can the mileage be so low? I only drive the Explorer a couple days a week - I’m adding only 3,000 miles per year (purchased in 2010 with 37,000 miles). For my purposes the cost to insure and occasionally repair the Explorer is no longer justified. I very rarely need such a big vehicle and I already have another 4-wheel driver. The size of the Explorer is great – I just returned from the dump and the Explorer was able to carry 12 large Home Depot lawn bags. I can haul a lot, but I’m longer doing the large projects that required the carrying capacity of a big SUV.

The Explorer is in good shape mechanically. It has had front end work, brake pads (rotors replaced at purchase), new locking hubs, and a battery within the last 10,000 miles. The Explorer recently ran through some huge puddles caused by some torrential rain and it ran perfectly – there are times the great ground clearance comes in handy. The Explorer always starts during the winter, even before the new battery installed this Spring. Transmission shifts smoothly. The Explorer has never left me stranded.

Am I leaving out any gotchas? No hidden time bombs. I’m no longer interested in taking apart the doors, replacing the headliner, or other projects I used to tackle.

4WD works fine. I occasionally will check the operation by briefly driving on wet roads to keep everything lubricated. The Explorer has been upgraded with ‘Warn’ locking hubs.
The vehicle has always periodically thrown the service light. No one has ever been able to find the source of the problem and here in Massachusetts a 1994 vehicle is exempt from smog testing so I’ve never really worried about the code. The light did not come back on for six months after the last code clearing but it is back again.

The Explorer is located on Cape Cod in Hyannis, Massachusetts (02601)

I’m happy to answer any questions or provide additional pictures. I have all service records since I purchased the vehicle.

This is a 23 year-old vehicle and is sold without warranty. My description is honest and accurate but I cannot forecast the future and tell you might fail on the vehicle.

Asking $2,400.

The Explorer is listed on the Explorer Forum and locally. I reserve the right to remove the ad if the Explorer sells elsewhere.

Only 63,000 miles.


Inspected in April 2017 for brakes, lighting and front end integrity during annual Massachusetts inspection.

Brakes – New front pads at 61,118 miles

Front end – New right upper and lower ball joints at 61,118 miles

Locking hubs – replaced with ‘Warn’ brand at 56,894 miles

Battery- replaced in Spring of 2017

Seats – Front power seats with cloth upholstery. These are upscale Explorer power seats and are very comfy.

Outside temperature gauge

Tires have lots of tread - see photo of tire depth and locking hub

Clean title in hand – ready to sell

Includes extra serpentine belt


Driver's front window sometime stick and rear window doesn’t want to go up. I’ve sprayed the tracks with silicon spray and it only helps a little.

Rust – rust is starting below passenger rear door. Photo attached.

Headliner needs replacement.

Paint- Explorer has sat outside its whole life and has faded paint on hood and roof.

Rear bumper attachment is loose on drivers side. The problem looks to be at the bumper where the frame extends out to meet the bumper. I’ve used a bungee cord to hold the bumper to the bracket.
