1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD

Review

We have had the vehicle for six years in September 2003. We have enjoyed the security and comfort of this vehicle. I was involved in a head on collision and literally walked away with minimal injury. I was travelling approx. 45-50mph at the time of the incident. I am grateful that I was driving my SUV at the time. My vehicle was repaired and drives great. Except for the poor mileage (it is a AWD AND and 8cyl) and the somewhat bumpy drive, I highly recommend this vehicle. I brag about it to family and friends and am looking at purchasing another soon.

Favorite Features

interior lighting, style of dashboard, outside temperaturegauge and the compass - very helpful!

Suggested Improvements

better suspension, too bumpy and ways to improve gas mileage. It is a guzzler.
