2002 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Be careful when purhasing an explorer now. There was a change in standard equipment on 1/28/02. The radio was upgraded, fog lights were added, the mirror has auto dim, seats are low back, the steering wheel comes leather wrapped. The delivery price difference is about $500 more than the job #1 price. Unfortuneately, the sales staff won't make it completely clear that one car should be cheaper than the other. For them it's a 2002 explorer XLT. As a buyer, you must be aware of this and protect yourself on the bid. Don't use the edmunds invoice price for these vehicles, as their current price reflects invoice for only the job #2 product. Pay attention

i am extremely impressed with what ford did with the new explorer. when i first heard about the new design with an IRS i assumed it would be an oversized station wagon like some of the comprtition.but it wasnt! its still a truck;that rides as good as the others and has an impressive amount of saftey and comfort options for the money. keep it up ford.

Rattles and stalls

2002 Ford Explorer SUV XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Since I bought this explorer it's been in the shop for repairs 5 times for 3 to 4 days each time. It has rattles in the dash, steering column and rear window. It hesitates when going into trafic. The alternator has been changed along with the left rear view miror.The rear end hums at 50 to 60 mmh. Ford said this is normal, I disagree and plan to sell the thing. JUNK

Twenty Years with Ford

Review

I've owned Ford trucks for over twenty years and moved into the Explorer with the same expectations. The performance is good but the gas mileage is only a little better than my trucks. The seats and trim need improvement. They are adequate but for what the Explorer cost I expected a little more. While it handles well off the road, getting the mud from inside the doors is a hassle. Going through a car wash doesn't get it, you have to open the doors to really clean it off.

Review

Purchased a new 2002 explorer and have enjoyed it thoroughly. Since it now has a 3rd row seat, i was able to use this as my family car and avoid the minivan club. no problems or regrets at 750 miles.

Our 4rd Explorer, but Qual. falls short

Review

This is our 4th Explorer. From an engineering point of view, it is the best. From a quality and reliability point of view, it is the worst, and quite possibly, the worst new vehicle which has ever sat in our driveway. The styling is excellent. The ride, handling, and comfort are stellar.

Review

I really like this vehicle. It's very comfortable, has good power, and is sharp to look at. I had a problem with the transmission shifting "hard", but took it in for a look and they replaced some parts and it runs fine. I would recommend this vehicle as the best bang for your buck as far as size and usefullness go among its competitors.
