2000 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

Not pleased, 50000km's and have had 2 blown trannys, 1 front end suspension, 1 computer module, rusted step bars, 2 passenger balljoints, And I pamper the thing, no off roading, and I drive like a granny. Never another Explorer. Also a clunk from the rear that the dealer can't fix, apparently it is normal, it is not, I have driven others with no clunk.


Best Features

lot's of interior room for carrying cargo. lighted mirrors are nice.


Worst Features

Make a more reliable SUV, You get what you pay for, NEVER BUY AN EXPLORER!

Review

I am delighted that so far I have been able to put appliances, etc that I need to haul in the back of my Explorer Sport without any difficulty. The suspension is a little bumpy though, even on decent roads. When the weather is cold the back door sticks and I can't get it open. Cold weather really affects the Explorer, and not for the good. My engine sometimes sounds like a vacuum cleaner. I would not recommend 2 doors for a family of more than 2- difficult to get out of te back.


Best Features

Cargo space, automatic 4 wheel drive


Worst Features

Don't tell customers that the expensive extended warranty covers them from bumper to bumper. I haven't been able to get ANYTHING covered by that warranty. For $1500 I could have paid for repairs at my own mechanic's place and still come out ahead.

Review

I traded in my 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder so I could get a dependable SUV...what a mistake I made. I have only had this car for 11 months and have had nothing but problems. Timing chain (3 times), transmission (3 times), stalls out when you shift into gear, EGR Valve, and countless others. I hate this car!

Review

The only problem that I have had is that the timing chain was making a rattle on my V6SOHC engine. Fun to drive and great for a small family. I definately will consider the Explorer with 3 rows when it comes time to purchase again. They could improve slightly on the driver's seat having a little more room. Also the rear wiper seems to be in a spot where it can be bent easily.


Best Features

V6 SOHC engine, 4WD, CD and tape, smooth transmission.


Worst Features

More room for driver, seat back pockets seam to 'strech out' easily.
