2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I have driven the 2001 Ford Exploer Sport for 5 years during my college days. Just to give you insight as to who I am, I am a 23 year old engineering student studing mechanical engineering I am looking to buy a bmw 330i, 2006 now. Speaking for SUV's I want to say that Ford has built a great truck in the Explorer Sport. This is because first,the reliablility is exceptional. If you maintaine regular fluid changes, the sport will run like the first day you owned it. Second, if you do have to maintain something large, the repairs are relatively inexpensive compared to European counterparts, (Japanese SUV's may be more expensive to repair too). Thirdly, The torgue that the sport has is plenty fun
Torque is exhillerating. Makes it feel like a much faster vehicle.
The seats could have been much better thought out. Somewhat uncomfortable.
