1997 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Very comfortable seats (captain's
seats). Engine (V6 SOHC) and 5 speed
automatic transmission still going
strong after 105000 miles. ABS system
went "kaput" right after warranty
period ran out. Dealer wanted $1000 to
fix forget it! Numerous other
problems like windshield wiper
problems, intake manifold gasket blown,
brake problems, heater fan quit, air
conditioner condenser leaks, and
numerous squeeks and noises.

Best Features

The seats, engine, and transmission - and that's about it!!!

Worst Features

Fix all the "little annoying things". I'll never buy another Ford again, and that's for sure!!!!!! Just too many problems, and not enough money to fix them.
