2000 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV


Review

I bought the truck with 36000 miles and I've had my explorer for 16 months now and I've had a/c and transmission issues. I had the compressor changed and a new pressure control valve changed in the transmission. Since then I've had no issues with my truck. I'm looking for an expedition because we just had another baby and the back seat just isn't roomy with a big car seat. Other than that the Explorer is fine.


Best Features

Rear control for the radio, Sunroof, and all of the other doo dads.


Worst Features

Better tow abilities! Towing a boat out of the boat launch stinks. No rear end weight makes it hard to tow out of slippery situations.

Review

I purchased this vehicle brand new and paid around 25000 dollars for it and I has been a nightmare. Not only did the dealership try to screw me out of the rebate the transmission has been replaced 3 times in 55000 miles and the thermostat has been replaced 4 times in 70000 miles. Ford has been absolutly useless in helping me. I tried to trade it in and of course they didnt want it either. I will never buy another ford I will buy foreign first.


Worst Features

Customer service and QUALITY IS JOB 1. For a start like they claim they have thats a joke!!!!!!!!!!!

Review

I purchased this Explorer new for my wife. Front bumper was out of alignment when we took delivery. Got hit with the fuel injector recall, after 3 trips to dealership for the "clunk" under the drivers feet they found nothing and we went to another dealership...missing transmission mounting bolt! Just paid it off and 6K miles out of warranty the transmission slips between 2nd and 3rd...$900 bills later! That new Sequoia is going to look good in my garage...bye bye Ford


Worst Features

Put some ponies under the hood! The 6 cylinder is way underpowered.
