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

Review

On the hole, this has been a decent 'family truckster' for seven plus years. Major issues have been the leaking rear differntial and an alternator that quit on the freeway during rush hour. Transmission now starting to slip a bit at 87000 miles. Has been great in the snow and on other lnog-distance trips, good combination of passenger room and stuff hauling ability. I have been very pleased with my Explorer, look forward to having it for many more years.

Favorite Features

Still looks good after seven years, 3rd seat, ride comfort. Has held together well.

Suggested Improvements

Too late now, but the V6 has always been my least favorite feature. Lacks power, runs rough, crummy mileage.
