Got a Good One!

1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV
Review
I purchased my SUV new and have been relatively happy with it. I got a good one! I've owned my Explorer for almost 12 years, have more than 224,000 miles on it (original engine and transmission) and it's held up pretty well. Only persistent problem seems to be a roaring in my wheel bearings, which I've had serviced a few times. Other than that this was a good purchase that has paid for itself over the years. Standard service intervals were always stretched (e.g. oil changes every 4,000 to 6,000 miles) - perhaps that is the secret to this longevity. I've owned three Fords before this one, and I hope I can make my next purchase a Ford also.
Favorite Features
Cloth seats which adjust easily!
Suggested Improvements
Sturdier fabric on steering wheel covering, and middle console vinyl! Once the middle console gets a small crack it will quickly escalate to a large tear, then totally rips away!
