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

Review

Just bought the vehicle on 03/06/02. So far, everything is ok... Runs well, and this unit seemed to be put together pretty tightly (manufactured 01/02). One thing to note if you are concerned about safety. The superior crash test ratings are based on models manufactured after 10/29/01 - read the fine print on the Ford site - I asked the dealer about this, and they confirmed there was a 'change' made to some frame components, whatever that means?

Best Features

The entire frame redesigned (ie.,. longer wheelbase, and wider stance) to provide better stability / rollover control, and other structural changes which appears (on paper) to provide superior impact protection...

Worst Features

For what I got charged for this vehicle, I think it should come standard with more features offered in the Eddie and Limited models ( Sorry Edmund's, could only get to within $700 of the TMV with a trade - I guess I'm a softy, but at least I didn't pay full price).
