A few problems, overall satisfied
By Hound on


2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Like the cool looking 2001 body (hate
the 2002) Fun to drive, but seat back
is uncomfortable on long rides, needs
to be more ergonomic (SP?).

One year into ownership, it overheated
on very short trips. Mechanic said he
is seeing a lot of bad thermostats on
the v6's.

At 32,000 miles now, noticed a very
slight delay in upshifting and a small
loss of power. Dealer said everything
OK. (Will be, I'm sure until warrenty
runs out).

Large cargo area ideal to have have a
lunchtime quickie with girlfriend at
work. Hey, you have to think of these

Best Features

Body and interior styling. Engine sound is unique...you get a mild roar with this very strange high-tech, indescribable sound

Worst Features

more comf seats, ride better quality control (thermostate, windshield wiper problem) joints/connectors/srews or whatever holds the whole thing together are rickety and squeeky.
