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


Bought it used from a dealer who used it in the winter. Great vehicle for New England snow storms. Built well, low maintenance costs. MPG is not great, it has a smaller tank so it sometimes seems worse than it is. Towed approx. 1500 lbs. easily, sometimes felt like I wasn't towing anything. Rides real rough, had to replace rear shocks at 22,000 and front at about 45,000. Overall not a bad car.

Best Features

Power, handling, visibility, towing capabilities, and 4-wheel drive.

Worst Features

Gas mileage. Rough ride, rides worse than an F-250, one bump makes the whole car shake. Rusty running boards.
