1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV
Bought car new $27K with towing packing. Overall very pleased with it. 20 mpg without fail. Great power seat but the seat back lever broke off at 100K, poor design. Loved the double driver side sun visor. Very reliable, traded it in at 143477 with only one roadside break down in 12 years due to the radiator. Good pick up. AC needed $400 repair at 140K, radio going out as well. CD changer broke at ~100K. Kept very good track of repairs. $8275 total for 143K miles.
Power seat. Double driver's side sun visor
Move the seat back adjust levers. Your leg hits them every time you enter and exit. They eventually snap off due to the repeated stress.
