1997 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV


Based on other responses, I am not the
only one who has had bad experience
with the Ford "Exploder". That's a
typical term from mechanics. I have put
over $3k in repairs to it in the 3
years I owned it. Replaced timing belt,
manifold work, and it has this issue
with stalling whenever it is idle,
fixed it once, won't pay to fix again,
traded it in(and got barely anything
for it), also my horn, power locks, and
rear windshield wiper all quit on me. I
will NEVER buy a FORD again.

Best Features

Worst Features

Make good quality cars or don't make them at all.
