1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD

Review

I bought our EB V-8 AWD explorer brand new and 7 years later at 85000 miles she is still a great performer! THis is our second EB had a 1994 that was equally good but underpowered so traded when the V-8 was available. I can't believe all the other reviews. The only problem I ever had was a computer module went out that caused the engine to run poorly and a power window switch at 60K. I do my own maintenance and used Mobil 1 ever since breakin and changed the plugs out early as waiting for 100K miles could be awhile. The AWD performs great in the snow and does much better than my 4X4 truck.

Favorite Features

V-8 performance and mileage is good at 18.5. Fit and finish, stereo and automatic temperature controls

Suggested Improvements

Seats could be wider for better long drive comfort, put a tow hitch on it with towing package!
