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

Review

My second new Ford. Bought it in June of 2000, and still drive it every day. Needs only routine maintenance, and has been absolutely wonderful. The little annoying things scarcely ruin my overall satisfaction in ownership. (e.g.: The center console vinyl fell apart after about a year.) Lots of room inside. (Fit 6 bicycles and 4 people) 4-wheel-drive is powerful, if a little clunky at lower speeds when using 4-Hi, but hardly an issue as it's rarely required as such. I'm very happy with my truck.

Favorite Features

4-wheel-drive, moonroof, power/torque, interior and exterior style, 6-disc hi-end stereo, roominess, handling, ride/suspension.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel efficiency needs to be improved drastically, but this is the case for all large vehicles. Ford has always performed on the lower end when it comes to braking. It's absolutely safe as is, but it could be much better with a little effort. Use higher quality materials for the interior!
