1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I can say that I have had a great experience with my Explorer. I bought it the way I wanted it, with plenty of options and comfort. I have used it for many a road trip to the mountains and to the beach and have driven from Atlanta to Phoenix and back. Most problems have been minor maintenance. Around 160K miles I started having transmission and transfer case problems. The Explorer still runs, is clean and paint still good,but I either need to have the transmission and transfer case rebuilt or sell it. I hope I can give it a new home where it will continue to perform well.

Favorite Features

Lumbar support, compass and outside temp display, 4WD, fold down rear seats,and power seats.

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage. A BMW X5 with V8 gets better gas mileage than a V6 Explorer.
