Vehicle

1997 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Very comfortable seats (captain's seats). Engine (V6 SOHC) and 5 speed automatic transmission still going strong after 105000 miles. ABS system went "kaput" right after warranty period ran out. Dealer wanted $1000 to fix forget it! Numerous other problems like windshield wiper problems, intake manifold gasket blown, brake problems, heater fan quit, air conditioner condenser leaks, and numerous squeeks and noises.

Favorite Features

The seats, engine, and transmission - and that's about it!!!

Suggested Improvements

Fix all the "little annoying things". I'll never buy another Ford again, and that's for sure!!!!!! Just too many problems, and not enough money to fix them.
