97 Ford Explorer

Vehicle

1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Bought with the intent of keeping long term. The truck was very reliable, good performance, reasonable efficiency. NO problem pulling a 3500 lb. trailer through mountains. Comfortable ride.

Favorite Features

Everything within reach of driver. Fold down rear seat (60/40) provides large cargo area.

Suggested Improvements

Cable linkages became sticky after a while and required service or replacements. PTO location is awkward; disturbs passenger seating.
