2001 Ford Explorer XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought this at 10,000 miles. Now have 135,000 and still running strong. Pulls my 21 ft boat easily. Excellent mileage if you are not a lead foot. Best was 23 MPG but avg is about 19. Owned a Bronco II, then an Eddie Bauer Explorer. Very happy with this XLT as well. Problem is the newer ones do nothing for me plus a drop in gas mileage. Unfortunately cannot pull the boat forever with that many miles. Beside brakes only needed front wheel bearings. Spent so much time driving that I need a comfortable ride which this gives. This will be very hard to eventually give up.

Favorite Features

Nice ride, decent gas milage, love the keyless entry, nice turning radius. Very dependable, good CD stereo.

Suggested Improvements

Not much, a bit small upfront. Hated that my daughetr can change the CD/radio from her back seat (she loved it).
