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.

Bad mileage "gas waister"

Vehicle: 2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV

I read the specs on this car and suppose to give you 16mpg city and 21mpg hwy. But every time I fill the tank I reset the odometer and I always get only about 10mpg city. If some one had the same problem I like to know how to fix it. Carlos

I have owned this vehicle for 4 years and have had NO problems with it whatsoever. Despite the bad press, it holds the road well and it an excellent vehicle.

I purchased my truck in June 03, over the weekend i was rear-ended at 65mph. The truck has since been totalled, but I am alive with a bruise! I was told a police officer i should have died. He hit my rear corner and it folded, the roof began to buckle from the force and i was plowed into a guard rail, I loved my truck but safety is FIRST, and i walked away with 1 bruise and whiplash, not to mention because i was stopped i didn't have my seatbelt on. I would buy another Explorer in a heartbeat. It may be a rough ride, but the bells and whistles are fun to have plus if you have children it's the most safest vehicle on the road (personally)

It appears the 2000 Explorer was built to last around 60,000 miles. Our 2000 Eddie Bauer is now falling apart with barely 65,000 miles. Most recently, we discovered Ford put a $50 transmission in a $36,000 vehicle. The transmission is going out. Shocking, considering 90% of this vehicle's miles were on the highway in overdrive and has NEVER towed anything! From the repair shops, I'm hearing Ford put far too flimsy a unit in the V6 Explorers. Many do not last as long as mine.




Pretty good suv

This is a great SUV. I commute from Beaumont to houston everday and drive about 115Mph. Each way (go texas drives) and the explorer will even get up and go at those speeds it is an excellent SUV. With The V8
