1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I love my Ford Explorer! The inside design is very comfortable and luxurious (doesn’t look cheap). The outside is just as nice again it doesn’t look like a cheap SUV. The A/C had a leak, which was the only problem so far. It has a nice amount of pickup, the V6 SOHC has all the power of a V8 around 210hp but gets the same gas mileage as a normal V6. The gas mileage could be better but it certainly is bigger and can tow more than a small mini suv that gets better mileage. (and I use the word SUV loosely) I would recommend getting one used because they lose a lot of their value within the first few years.

Best Features

Keyless entry, Pickup, COLD A/C (rear+front), really everything

Worst Features

Miles Per Gallon, Seat recliner brook off for bending back and forth
