1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV AWD


I bought my explorer from carmax with about 36k miles in 98. Initially I had a lot of minor problems going back and forth to carmax and then 1 big problem that never got fully resolved. I had a problem with heating and a/c system switching from heat to air conditioning. After that no major problems with this vehicle lasted a long time 226k before it died on me. The body and interior held up very good still in very good condition. Had a lot of class for an SUV and fun to drive and take on long trips. Overall I was very satisfied with my explorer got my money out of it.

Best Features

Leather , CD, Sunroof and fun to drive.

Worst Features

I wish it would have had 3rd row seating
