2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
After 46000 miles and 3 years I have
had to have over $1200 in repairs not
to mention dumping a $1000 a year into
it every year since I've had it. It
just hasn't held up. While the
exterior looks great, the engine is
lacking, a lot of misfires and
sluggish performance, and suspension
problems now. It's a nice vehicle,
the ride is fine, interior quality is
ok, the build quality just hasn't held
Tight turning radius (watch out for
bumps though, you'll fishtail like
mad), powerful engine (it was anyways).
Improve the build quality, I just
don't have the feeling my vehicle will
last beyond a 100K since I've had so
many problems under 50K.
