I previously traded my 4-door Exployer
for the 2-door thinking we could get
better gas mileage but not give up the
SUV rideability. Sorry i did! Although
still under warranty at the time ,the
timing belt was replaced back in 1999
around the 20k mark. My power seat
latch broke on the driver side to get
to the back seat. My wife has a
terrible time getting the baby car seat
in and getting the seat belts to work
properly. It cost me about $175 to
replace my battery at Oxmoor Ford of
Lou, Ky, sound system went out the list
goes on and own. There should have been
a recall on the seats and seat belts
for the 97 model.
I like the way my Exployer hanles on
the road. I can do a complete u-turn in
the smallest space like you wouldn't
Seats and seat belts, factory JVL sound
system, Transmission/4by4 switch over
very noisy and rough.
