2003 Ford Explorer Sport XLS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I've had my explorer for only a week
and love it. I've put 500 miles on it
so far. The gas milage isn't that
great, but the power and looks make up
for it. I've got the optional sunroof
and cloth seats that will be perfect
for going to college. The ride isn't as
smooth as my mom's Crown VIcotira, but
her car can't pull 4000 pounds.
Moonroof, comanding view of the road,
XLT Premium rims, cargo room.
Some more aggressive tires would be
nice on the 2WD. I was driving accross
a wet field, stopped and when I tried
to start going again I started spinning
and had to be pulled out. The stock
Michelin's are nice on the highway but
think I might upgrade to some
Bridgestone Dueler A/T's.
