2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Review
Like the cool looking 2001 body (hate the 2002) Fun to drive, but seat back is uncomfortable on long rides, needs to be more ergonomic (SP?). One year into ownership, it overheated on very short trips. Mechanic said he is seeing a lot of bad thermostats on the v6's. At 32,000 miles now, noticed a very slight delay in upshifting and a small loss of power. Dealer said everything OK. (Will be, I'm sure until warrenty runs out). Large cargo area ideal to have have a lunchtime quickie with girlfriend at work. Hey, you have to think of these things.
Favorite Features
Body and interior styling. Engine sound is unique...you get a mild roar with this very strange high-tech, indescribable sound
Suggested Improvements
more comf seats, ride better quality control (thermostate, windshield wiper problem) joints/connectors/srews or whatever holds the whole thing together are rickety and squeeky.
