What happened to Quality being Job 1?
By Detroit on

Vehicle

1997 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

I bought the vehicle but everything fell apart after 70000 miles: tranny @ 93k, radiator @ 100k, transfer case @ 105k. Never buy a leased SUV, you don't know what someone did to it. Overall though, I am very disappointed and would not recommend a Ford SUV to anyone. Maybe mine was just a lemon waiting to happen, but I'll never get another Ford SUV again. I can't even begin to say all the things that have gone wrong.

Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, great 4x4 [when it works], good road handling.

Suggested Improvements

Better transmissions and transfer cases; better radiator hoses. Put some quality back in the SUVs
