1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Why I love my beat up old Ford. With 115,000 miles (and counting) she still runs like a dream. I have replaced a few things here and there (but I have with every older car I have owned) Hint for people with gas mileage problems: change the oil, clean fuel injectors, replace air filter, keep tires inflated properly, and change your fuel filter. I still get 19 miles to the gallon or higher (pretty good for an old SUV). Oh and don't drive a aggressively (makes a huge difference). 10 years down lots more to go.

Best Features

Cargo room! Great for traveling with dogs.

Worst Features

They redesigned it so many times doesn't really matter now. My suggestion is to go electric.
