1997 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


I bought the vehicle with 99k miles on it and have done a lot of long distance driving with it. The truck is comfortable and has been very reliable since it has started every day! Gas mileage is horrible and the electrical inside of the vehicle is crazy like windshield wipers not working correctly and lights in the instrument cluster going out and lots of other problems. The door locking system outside the truck broke and is very intermittent, but for the money I paid it has paid itself off.

Best Features

4WD, non-locking hubs, and functional roof rack.

Worst Features

Better electrical quality and, gas mileage - I'm going broke....
