123000 miles and still going strong
By Terry in Los Angeles on


1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


I bought my 97 Explorer to pull a 20'
boat, then 6 months later bought a 23'
boat that weights just at the maximum
tow rating. I have had the transmission
serviced twice due to the tow strain I
put on it, but I have had no problems
with any part of the drivetrain. At
100,000 miles I had a problem with
the automatic climate control which
caused the heater to not work and
caused a hefty repair charge. The air
conditioning works great. I have all
the options and they all still work

Best Features

Great cargo area with rear seats down. Has good head and leg room. Very nice O.E. sterio and CD player. Drives like a car.
