Best Little SUV Ever
By FORDMAN on
2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I've owned my 2001 Explorer sport since 2003 when I was in college. Since then I've clocked more than 100000 miles in it. Aside from a trip to the dealer for a bad air flow sensor she's been good to me. Never let me down, always started, still runs like a champ. I love the interior layout, while small I always seem to find room for what I'm hauling when I lay the seats flat. Sadly I will soon have to part with her as I'm about to have a baby and will need to upgrade to another Explorer (this time the sport trac) to have 4 doors to fit the baby.
Interior layout, good exterior looks. Rock solid reliability.
Rear wiper stopped working from the get go (who needs it though) and the engine chugs a little until its warm (needs better air intake gaskets). The center consol purse is an abomination and I'm glad Ford got rid of it in the redesign
