1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Alot of options for the money.The 4.0
SOHC motor has plenty of
horsepower.Beware of the timing chain
tensioner problems and intake manifold
gasket problem,though.Recall on these
will fix it,but warranty runs out 7
yr/84000 miles.I have had no major
problems with this vehicle.Only
problems so far were two thermostats
and front end alignment.It could use
some shocks.All in all I'm satisfied
with this SUV.

Best Features

Mucho horsepower and plenty of options.

Worst Features

Needs better sound system , shocks , and front end work.Body roll is a problem , but so do most SUV's .
