Explorer's Rule the SUV World
By lankieone on


1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


We have had the vehicle for six years
in September 2003. We have enjoyed
the security and comfort of this
vehicle. I was involved in a head on
collision and literally walked away
with minimal injury. I was travelling
approx. 45-50mph at the time of the
incident. I am grateful that I was
driving my SUV at the time. My vehicle
was repaired and drives great. Except
for the poor mileage (it is a AWD AND
and 8cyl) and the somewhat bumpy
drive, I highly recommend this
vehicle. I brag about it to family
and friends and am looking at
purchasing another soon.

Best Features

interior lighting, style of dashboard, outside temperaturegauge and the compass - very helpful!

Worst Features

better suspension, too bumpy and ways to improve gas mileage. It is a guzzler.
