1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD

Review

This has been a practical, fun, and very reliable vehicle, with only minimal unscheduled maintenance. Needed a brake job and tie-ins replaced at 90,000 miles, but what do you expect? The ride is not great, but it's a real SUV that you can drive over fields and rough paths.

Favorite Features

Large and completely flat rear cargo area, excellent for car camping (it's more than 6 feet long and about 4 feet wide) or hauling a lot of stuff.

Suggested Improvements

A quieter transmission.
