Love my Explorer!

1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


This is not only a fun truck to drive,
but it's a great family vehicle. We
have been considering replacing it with
a minivan, but everytime I get into my
Explorer I think "No way am I giving up
this power!" Not to mention, it looks
GREAT! We love this truck and it has
been very good to us. We would buy
another Explorer in a heartbeat...of
course, with our growing family - it
may need to be an Expedition!

Best Features

POWER! Durable interior...we have a great dane and a 3yr old boy...it's been put to the test!

Worst Features

Had to replace the rear end last year. Ride improved, but it's still on the bumpy side. I'm afraid one of the rear power windows are about to go, but it gets a little more use with my curious 3 yr old.
