2003 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this car to replace a vehicle that couldnt do everything i needed from my car. I love this car, i can fit 2 bikes in the summer and all the boards, skis, and gear of 5 people in the winter time(this car handles great in snow) i drive it pretty hard offroad and it takes all of the punishment without issues. its been jumped, drifted, backed into, smashed, and evertything else i throw at it and it keeps going. the mpg is not great in the town but its a SUV. however i recently put a flowmaster 40 on it which made it sound great and it brought the mpg up to 17-18 which is fabtastic to me because i drive it hard. the only problem i have it a CV joint but thats a wear item and easy to fix.

Best Features

Sound system, appearance, handling, lets you go just about anywhere. many of my friends drive comperable vehicles (blazers,rodeos, etc) and they all love this car

Worst Features

a bit more HP would be nice but it still has good power
