BEST PERFORMING SUV I EVER OWNED
By TONY ZAMPARELLI on
2003 Ford Explorer NBX 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This truck has always been fun to drive. On the highway it is very nimble. Changing lanes is very predictable. Their is plenty of power when needed inpart to 3:73LS AXLE that allows for faster acceleration. The auto fwd feature can be annoying with the slight hesitation in grabbing the pavement when the rear wheels slip. But it does do the job. I prefer to keep in full time 4 wheel drive in heavy snow. It's a nice easy truck to drive. I've had very few mayor problems with. I replaced the flywheel at 85000. Theirs been no engine problems. It does have the second set of tires and second set of brakes.
I love the 5 speed overdrive transmission. It actually lets you start in 1 2 3 or drive. With the independent rear suspension going over bumps is a breeze
better windshield wipers. And a better front defroster. It is very hard to keep clean when their is a lot of ice.
