1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


I bought our EB V-8 AWD explorer brand
new and 7 years later at 85000 miles
she is still a great performer! THis
is our second EB had a 1994 that was
equally good but underpowered so traded
when the V-8 was available. I can't
believe all the other reviews. The
only problem I ever had was a computer
module went out that caused the engine
to run poorly and a power window switch
at 60K. I do my own maintenance and
used Mobil 1 ever since breakin and
changed the plugs out early as waiting
for 100K miles could be awhile. The
AWD performs great in the snow and does
much better than my 4X4 truck.

Best Features

V-8 performance and mileage is good at 18.5. Fit and finish, stereo and automatic temperature controls

Worst Features

Seats could be wider for better long drive comfort, put a tow hitch on it with towing package!
