2003 Ford Explorer Sport SUV XLS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Bought my Expo Sport (new) in July of
2003. With only 6500 or so miles on
the odomoeter, the truck is still
running like a champ. Overall, I find
my SUV to be stylish, powerful and
comfortable with a few notable, though
perhaps obvious drawbacks.
Foremost, the truck guzzles fuel! I
currently average around 11-14 mpg!
Further, my expo rattles and creaks
like a piece of farming equipment.
Positives? there are many. A smooth
and powerful motor, great visibility,
comfortable seats and a generally
refined drving experience overall
(minus the creaks & moans of course).
Rugged styling, visibility, smooth and
Improved cupholders, fewer rattles,
larger gas-tank, better mileage (all
of these were improved in 2002)

On my second Sport, after enjoying
number one, traded for number two.
Sorry I did, quality is low, air
conditioner has an inherent buzz and
the attention to detail is at an all
time low. Ford is really tying to save
money so dealers are trying to keep
warranty claims to a minimum. Squeak,
rattles and rolls, it's a Ford.
Stop using cheap materials, the seats
are looking worn on the edges already.
