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

Review

Bought my Expo Sport (new) in July of 2003. With only 6500 or so miles on the odomoeter, the truck is still running like a champ. Overall, I find my SUV to be stylish, powerful and comfortable with a few notable, though perhaps obvious drawbacks. Foremost, the truck guzzles fuel! I currently average around 11-14 mpg! Further, my expo rattles and creaks like a piece of farming equipment. Positives? there are many. A smooth and powerful motor, great visibility, comfortable seats and a generally refined drving experience overall (minus the creaks & moans of course).

Favorite Features

Rugged styling, visibility, smooth and well-muted V6

Suggested Improvements

Improved cupholders, fewer rattles, larger gas-tank, better mileage (all of these were improved in 2002)
