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

Review

This is the first and last Ford SUV I will own. The poor quality of the vehicle was magnified by the uncooperative and unhelpful dealership. The vehicle handles poorly in moderate winter conditions and fuel economy has decreased significantly over the last year. The vehicle was never driven off road and is well maintained;however that did not help prevent having to replace both front ball joints, rear wiper,and rear bumper (due to rust) to name a few problems. I have owned this vehicle slightly over a year and now want to rid of it.

Favorite Features

The driver sits higher compared to other smaller SUVS and it allows for greater eye lead when driving.

Suggested Improvements

Ford should pay a little more attention to quality rather than quantity. There were a number of poorly finished interior trim complaints. More importantly, invest more time and money into dealerships and provdide advice for proper customer service/satisfaction.
