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


Review

This is a very roomy SUV. I purchased the 5 speed model and am very impressed with the pick-up power it has off the line and passing power on the highway.The feul economy is not everything i would like it to be, but this also isnt a small vehicle. The design is very sporty and i get compliments on its appearance all the time. Overall im very happy with ford on this one.


Favorite Features

Powerfull V6, cd player, power windows and locks, lots of room for passangers and cargo.


Suggested Improvements

siding is plastic. Not that it needs it but an opptional V8 would be nice.

Review

I have only had this vehicle for 4 months, so far no problems mechanically. The driver side seat rubs against the center console and squeeks, and the pink stuffing inside is already coming out on the carpet below. The passenger side seat is already tearing on the corner, and this is barely ever used.


Favorite Features

The ease of people getting in and out from the back seat. The body style is very nice and sporty looking.


Suggested Improvements

interior, and the "paper" speakers.
