2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Well I bought this truck because
honestly it looked great and I felt
that I was getting a great deal for
it. It's been consistent that every
year I had to put in about $1k to get
it passed inspection. I have had so
many problems with this thing. Those
sensors seem to go at the worse time
and each convienently costs about 100
dollars to replace. I seem to find
problems that even a Ford dealership
has problems fixing. Now my car needs
heavy negotiation with the gas pedal to
start up cold. I've already spent 800
dollars at the dealership to get it
resolved. They say it's fixed, but the
very next day I have the same problem.

Best Features

The exterior really caught my eye. It has a mean look to it.

Worst Features

Such a rough ride. If you hit a bump when making a turn, prepare for an earthquake effect. Because this is a two door, make sure you have something heavy in the rear because add a bit of rain and you'll spin those tires with the slightest pressure on the gas pedal.
