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

Review

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 up well.

Best Features

Tight turning radius (watch out for bumps though, you'll fishtail like mad), powerful engine (it was anyways).

Worst Features

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.
