1997 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Good truck, manual transmission is a little touchy and sometimes is hard to shift. Handling and ride are excellent. 4-WD works well, doesn't always kick in right away. CD changer skips a lot. Its got 130,000 miles, and still runs like new. Only big problem right now is the side-step bars are rusting

Favorite Features

Interior/Exterior design, Manual transmission, Captain's chairs. Sound quality is good.

Suggested Improvements

Make the manual transmission easier on shifting. Tends to grind on fast downshift. Increase acceleration and better fuel mileage
