2000 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV

Review

Over all, itís OK. The ride is choppy and rough and it averages 18mpg even with the best riding tires I can find. I would not recommend this vehicle for long cross country drives. The spark plug wires have been replaced every 30,000 miles due to heat damage. The brakes lasted 50,000 miles, the A/C lasted to 100,000 (4 YEARS). The engine drive seal failed and now leaks oil on to the manifold, leaving a wonderful smoke trail. The radio lights fade on and off at will and the front driverís side door lock wonít unlock with the remote. Most of my driving is dry smooth Arizona highways with no rattling problems and a never used AWD and tow package.

Favorite Features

Small truck, it fits in the garage.

Suggested Improvements

This size truck should have better mileage, ride and larger fuel tank; 350 miles between fuel stops is too short. Seats are too high, I have to duck or lean way back, Iím 5í 9Ē.
