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


After 46000 miles and 3 years I have
had to have over $1200 in repairs not
to mention dumping a $1000 a year into
it every year since I've had it. It
just hasn't held up. While the
exterior looks great, the engine is
lacking, a lot of misfires and
sluggish performance, and suspension
problems now. It's a nice vehicle,
the ride is fine, interior quality is
ok, the build quality just hasn't held
up well.

Best Features

Tight turning radius (watch out for bumps though, you'll fishtail like mad), powerful engine (it was anyways).

Worst Features

Improve the build quality, I just don't have the feeling my vehicle will last beyond a 100K since I've had so many problems under 50K.
