Review of the 2000 Ford Explorer

  • In spite of its ubiquity, the dated 2000 Ford Explorer can't compete with the other excellent midsize SUVs available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    A commanding view of the road, multiple engine choices, one of the most comfortable and commodious cabins in its class.

  • Cons

    Trucklike ride, poor gas mileage with V8 engine.

  • What's New for 2000

    For the 2000 Ford Explorer, a color-keyed, two-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel (with auxiliary audio, climate and speed control) is now standard on Eddie Bauer models. XLT Sport/Eddie Bauer/Limited models with 5.0-liter V8s receive a trailer-towing package as standard equipment. The XL is available only for fleet sales, and the XLS replaces the XL Appearance as the base retail model.

Good car, few faults

Vehicle: 2000 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV 4WD

I bought this car 2 months ago, and have had nothing but problems. The next morning after i bought it, somehow there was a hole in the exhaust and i needed a completely new one. Dealer replaced it after much arguing, and now my check engine and check suspension light are on, I believe i need a new mass air flow sensor and a ball joint. On top of this, my ABS sensor failed, and it doesn't work. Apparently this truck passed safety, but it definitely shouldn't have.

The heated seat on the drivers side went out at 36,000 miles. 6 way CD player was replaced under warranty. Ball joints replaced at 29,000 miles, was just out of warranty 3 weeks; dealership replaced them free. You expect something like this at 100,000 miles, not 29,000. stabilizer control links were just replaced at 42,000 miles. This is the 2nd Explorer I have owned. My 1994 never had suspension problems like this one. I do not drive off road and maintain the car to manufacturer recommendations.
