2003 Ford Explorer Sport SUV XLT 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love my Explorer! I will keep buying them as long as they keep making them. A very reasonable buy for what you get; lots of great low-priced extras such as power seats, etc. Very comfortable! Doesn't handle as well as it could though.


Best Features

I love the interior design. It is classy, easy to read and see, easily accessible from the drivers' seat.


Worst Features

Better handling and bigger back seat. Make it a bench seat too

2003 Ford Explorer Sport SUV XLT Rwd 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Not a bad overall vehicle, but am really upset that I didn't pony up the extra 1500 for the 4dr model. The 2 door really does limit its appeal and resale plummets w/ the 2door compared to the 4dr model. Fun & quiet to drive, but the dinky gas tank always makes you on guard during long trips.


Best Features

Front seat comfort, 4 wheel discs, controls well placed.


Worst Features

Bigger gas tank, at least a 20 gallon. Doubt the 2 door will be continued anyhow.

2003 Ford Explorer Sport SUV XLT Premium 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love my Explorer.. Really its my hubbys car but I steal all the time.. I love to drive it.. It does get a little bumpy sometimes if your in rough areas.. but still I love to drive it..


Best Features

I like having running boards to make it easier to step up into.. and the cruise control is great on long trips..


Worst Features

Figure out a way to make it less bumpy when you hit rough spots in the road and thats the only thing.. It really hasn't been a problem.. But if I was to suggest anything be improved on this vehicle that would be it..
