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

Review

In the first six months of owning my Explorer Sport the following has been replaced for defects: the electronic control module (the brain), the fuel pump, the back window shield wiper, the outer door molding, the oxygen sensor for emissions, the interior "cruise control lights". This is my second Explorer Sport. My first one (a 1998 model) was the polar oppposite of this one...never a problem and it saved my life in a rollover crash at 70mph. While the reliability on my existing Explorer is questionable, the safety systems are impeccable. At least I have the peace of mind in knowing that this vehicle can and will save my life. And let's face it, that is worth a lot!

Best Features

The sporty exterior, silver trim interior moldings, and a world class safety system.

Worst Features

An improved ride (not quite so jarring going over bumps) would be a welcome improvement.
