2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my '01 Sport after my '99 Sport was totalled 2 years ago with around 118,000 miles on it. I've never had to anything other than routine oil changes, etc and I've put about 20,000 miles on it. I'm not easy on cars either. The only issues I've had with it is that it is hard to start (it doesn't crank immediately) and the disc changer stopped working. Unfortunately, someone rear-ended me and totalled this one 2 weeks ago. As long as only having 2 doors (NOT fun for travelling or people with children) and bad gas mileage (15-16 mpg city) don't bother you, this is a great SUV. I would recommend an Explorer in a heartbeat.
