2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I've had this truck for 4 1/2 years and it's been flawless. I used to be a diehard GM customer but my last 2 vehicles have been Fords and I have been very happy with them. It's unfortunate that Ford discontinued the Sport since it was the perfect size for someone without kids. The reliability has been excellent and I still love the looks of it as much as when I bought it.
The exterior styling, performance, dash layout, fun to drive.
I like a stiff ride but I know some would find it too harsh.
