1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV

Review

The Explorer was a great car til about 70K miles. Since then, it has been like all American Cars - falling apart. I swear they build these things to fall apart at 70K miles. How many $250 O2 sensors can be packed into a car that are made to fail at higher mileages. That is on top of the $1300 Trans rebuild that I had to do while on vacation in Fl. I know things break, but my Honda with 130K miles NEVER had any problems other than preventitive maintenance. This is the last American car that I will own!
