All good, but transmission
By Chris on


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


I bought my Explorer with 46,xxx miles on it. Now at 146,xxx miles, I've grown really fond of almost everything about the truck. Except the fact that I've had to rebuild the transmission twice! It went out once right before 100,000 and again about 40k later! The moonroof leaks pretty bad, too. It's treated me great otherwise, but I'm sick of replacing the transmission and the 18 MPG, too.

Best Features

Rear air controls, power moonroof

Worst Features

Rear speakers point right into passenger thighs, which is absurd. Rear seats don't lock into place when up, so they flip up when passengers try to get out of them.
