2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Well I bought this truck because honestly it looked great and I felt that I was getting a great deal for it. It's been consistent that every year I had to put in about $1k to get it passed inspection. I have had so many problems with this thing. Those sensors seem to go at the worse time and each convienently costs about 100 dollars to replace. I seem to find problems that even a Ford dealership has problems fixing. Now my car needs heavy negotiation with the gas pedal to start up cold. I've already spent 800 dollars at the dealership to get it resolved. They say it's fixed, but the very next day I have the same problem.

Best Features

The exterior really caught my eye. It has a mean look to it.

Worst Features

Such a rough ride. If you hit a bump when making a turn, prepare for an earthquake effect. Because this is a two door, make sure you have something heavy in the rear because add a bit of rain and you'll spin those tires with the slightest pressure on the gas pedal.
