2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0L Shocking Still
By ewjayester on


2000 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV AWD


I purchased this vehicle used, after my Toyota Land Cruiser was totaled. I wanted another SUV/Truck that I could use as a work horse. I had no faith in the vehicle at all, none what so ever. I drove it hard and still do, I didn't wash it, wasn't thinking about its maintenance, and the thing continued to, if I must say, (EXPLORE). No issues with any type of upkeep or problems of service lights, strange noises, anything falling apart, which was my fore thought of Fords all my life. Needless to say it just hit 140k and purrs like a kitten. The engine is super strong, which is one reason my title of the review states shocking, and still going strong. I'm now a believer in Ford. A GT40 is next.

1. 5.0L V8 Engine 2. On-board Computer for mileage, fuel, maintenance/service, distance, range, trip, etc. 3. Limited Edition which has more amenity options/features than the Eddie Bauer Edition. 4.
