2002 Ford Explorer Sport Value 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I bought my '02 Ford Explorer Sport used with 86K on it. I've had it for two or three years now and I'm very happy with it. It now has 110K on it and has been very reliable so far. Some features have stopped working (CC, outside temp, a couple buttons on the radio, the 4WD Low setting) but it still gets me around just fine. The only parts I've had to replace so far are the wheel bearings and the fan belt. Still, I won't complain. It's a good little truck! I'm thinking my next vehicle will most likely be another Ford Explorer or Escape.
Great in the snow and easy to drive and park.
It tends to bounce around on the road a bit much when going over bumps, probably due to the short wheelbase. If they could have remedied that somehow, that would have been greatly appreciated.
