1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Worst care ever owned. Engine just blew due to broken timing chain and only had 60k on it. Always maintained well above average. Manifold gaskets went, fuel induction problems almost every other year. Real treat. Buy American. Original owner and treated it like a baby. Apparently it did not help.

Suggested Improvements

If you have one, burn it before it eats you out of house and home. At 60 years of age, first car that didn't make it to 100,000 miles.
