1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD
Review
Unlike those reviewers who have panned the 1997 Explorer, I have found with Mobil 1 and had regular maintenance by Explorer has performed extremely well. There has been only one problem which cost about $100 in repairs. It has been an excellent truck. The gas mileage is about my only complaint but after all, it is a fairly large truck that with only average aerodynamics. I feel my Explorer has met my expectations and am totally satisfied with its performance and value.
Favorite Features
I like the dash layout; the convenience of multiple DC outlets, and the space when the seats are folded. The center console 6-disk is great. The engine has very good highway performance and it is a better than average four-wheel drive, off-roader.
Suggested Improvements
Nothing significant. Cosmetically the center hub on the wheel was not my favorite look.
