1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

We've got over 110k on this beast and it keeps on going. Been hit (real hard) in the back, once or twice by road debris in the front and still no problems! Can't remember how many times it's been recalled (quite a few), but everything was fixed at no cost, so I don't mind. Point is, despite my predictions to the contrary, this has proven to be a very reliable American vehicle! Averages about 18 MPG with the high-output 6cyl and 5sp auto tranny. Some slight problems with suspension gremlins, but nothing that's kept it off the road or anything you wouldn't expect from a car with 100k+ miles on it.
