Good truck to own.

Vehicle1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD
ReviewPurchased this SUV used in April of
2000, with 40k on the odometer. We're
only the second owners of this vehicle.
Other than some costly front-end
repairs shortly after purchase (covered
under warranty thankfully), my wife and
I really love this vehicle. The 5.0 V8
is a gas hog only if you frequently
have a heavy foot. Under
normal/moderate driving conditions the
fuel consumption is average for having
full-time AWD and a V8. Great in
Chicagoland heavy snow and rainy
weather conditions. No chore has been
too big for this truck. Great for a
family of four.
Best FeaturesReliable and powerful 5.0 liter V8 engine. Full-time AWD is convenient for poor weather conditions. Spacious cargo and passenger compartments. Good crash test rating. Attractive exterior styling. The JBL AM/FM Cassette/CD Changer Stereo works and sounds great for being five years old.
Worst FeaturesThe suspension is a bit too rigid and could have been a little softer without sacrificing utility. Upgrade to less firm riding shocks if you desire a softer ride. However, it is a truck that was built in the late 90's and not a car or minivan.
