Not great, but good.

2000 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV 4WD
Has more of the redesigned 2001 features. It's basically a 2001 without the newer body style. The only thing it doesn't have is the SOHC 4.0l engine, it has the OHV 4.0l engine. The OHV is not bad for acceleration from a standstill, but at highway speeds you barely move. If you buy this year make sure it has a SOHC engine because some do and some don't, and most dealerships will sell both engines at the same price and that's a difference of 160 hp and 210 hp. No MAJOR problems but a lot of nuisances. The rear wiper works intermittently; you have to get the slip yokes lubed ($50) or else it feels like the tranny drops. Not a bad SUV though...at least mine.
Lights under mirrors, rear radio controls, autodimming mirror, autolamp, fender flares, interior room, nice acceleration, cargo power lock.
Needs better sound system, need to make interior more sound (lots of interior noise), rear wiper needs to work, OHV engine sounds like a diesel engine in the morning.
