2000 Ford Explorer SUV Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Moon roof, auto-dimming rearview mirror.


Suggested Improvements

CDs tend to get warm as the CD player is right above the heating vents.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

No favorite features.


Suggested Improvements

Build a suspension that will go 100,000 miles with no maintenance.

Review

I LOVE my Ford Explorer. It handles beautifully. I love the ease of loading/unloading in the back. It's comfortable to drive. I have had no major mechanical issues and have had to do very little maintenance. The only down-side is the gas mileage. I would recommend an Explorer to anyone interested in an SUV.

Review

Car handles well in snow and bad road conditions. Visibility is good except for front right corner, where the windshield bar blocks the view somewhat. I like the heated seat and passenger comfort system, heat and air both.


Favorite Features

Heated seat, 4WD, size feels good, easy to get in and out of.


Suggested Improvements

I wish there was a place where I wouldn't lose papers while I was driving. If someone is in the car with me, there is no place to stow my purse, papers, etc.
