1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV

Review

Am the original owner and have 122,000 mi on my Explorer. Have never had a problem that needed repairing. It runs very quiet; is comfortable (cloth seats); hauled sand, stone, U-hauls w/no issues. Only had 2 issues: the lumbar support airbag must have a slow leak and the on-off radio button doesn't want to stay off. The ride is smoother than my Ford Five Hundred! I'm exceptionally pleased with the quality and comfort. Very quiet inside, too.

Favorite Features

Fold down rear seats to load more stuff, like lumber; the outside temp & compass display.

Suggested Improvements

A hood rod to hold up the hood rather than hydraulic rods. Standard running boards.
