1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV


I have enjoyed my Explorer, so much I
plan to buy another one this yr. The
problems I have had were all minor &
easily corrected. The ONLY issue I had
that I could never fix was in cold, wet
wheather, the auto off feature for the
head lamps would engage & the only way
to correct it was to unhook the
battery. Ford repair could never fix
it, fortunatly it only happened maybe 3
or 4 times a year.

Best Features

I liked everything about it, excellent power, roomie interior, good controls and fine workmanship

Worst Features

Work on getting a hybrid model of Explorer out, poor milage expensive & wasteful. The Escape is too small to move large loads so its not an option.
