Excellent All Around Vehicle
By Jon K. on

Vehicle

2001 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I bought this vehicle new in March 2001 and we use it for traveling and pulling our boat. With 80,000 miles on it, it is still as tight as the day we bought it... I can't say that about my sisters GMC Jimmy that she bought at the same time! The Explorer is excellent in the snow and mud and will take almost anything you can throw at it. We use it to pull a 4,200 lb boat and trailer to lakes that are over 300+ miles away and have never had a single problem with it.

Favorite Features

I like the limited slip rear end with the auto 4WD, the electrochromatic mirror and the rear air controls.

Suggested Improvements

The ride on the 2001 is a little rough around town... It doesn't bother me as much as it does my wife. I hear the 2002's and later have improved on the ride tremendously.
