2003 Ford Explorer Sport XLT 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This Ford explorer sport is my first
SUV and first 4wd vehicle. The sport
puts the driver in a commanding
driving position.The handling is
nimble and turning radius is very
tight for a vehicle of this size.
Build quality seems excellent and I
haven't found any real flaws or
defects so far. The 2dr sport was a
perfect choice for me and my wife. Our
son is grown and we have'nt yet had a
rear seat passengers. The 4dr explorer
is simply way more truck than we need
It's very smooth on the highway. Quiet
and stable, very comfortable and
effortless to drive. Mileage runs
about 15 in city and 19 highway.
High driving position. Interior comfort
Smooth ride for truck based SUV.
Include step bars and fog lights on
all XLT 4wd models.
