RIDES LIKE A BAD HORSE

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

Review

SOON AFTER I BOUGHT THIS TRUCK IN OCT
2000 I SUSPECTED I HAD MADE A BAD
PURCHASE. AFTER ALMOST THREE YEARS
OWNING IT I HAVE CONFIRMED WHAT A HUGE
MISTAKE I MADE. FOR STARTERS THIS TRUCK
LOSES IT WHEN IT HITS A POTHOLE OR A
SPEED BUMP. THE TAIL SWAGS TO THE SIDE.
IT OFFERS A VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND
BUMPY RIDE OVER ANYTHING THAT ISN'T
PERFECT ASPHALT. THE TITANIUM FINISH ON
THE DOOR HANDLES HAVE COME OFF AND NOW
LOOK AN UGLY DISCOLORED GRAY. THE
INSTRUMENT PANEL AND DASHBOARD ARE SO
BADLY ASSEMBLED THAT IT SQUEAKS AND
RATTLES. I HAVE HAD TO TAKE IT TO THE
DEALERSHIP SEVERAL TIMES.

Best Features

PIONEER 6 DISC IN DASH CD PLAYER. IT'S A GOOD LOOKING TRUCK FROM THE OUTSIDE. THE ENGINE IS ITS #1 ASSET. THE OVERHEAD CONSOLE WITH COMPASS COMES IN VERY HANDY.

Worst Features

THE RIDE AND SUSPENSION NEED A MAJOR OVERHAUL. FORD SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO SELL THIS TRUCK, SPECIALLY TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION HOW WELL THE REST OF THE EXPLORER LINEUP DRIVES AND HANDLES. THIS EXPLORER SPORT IS A MAJOR DISSAPPOINTMENT!!!
