Great first SUV

2002 Ford Explorer Sport Value 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Traded in a 2001 Ford Ranger for this
little gem. The ride is great,
compared to the Ranger and almost as
smooth as the Mazda Tribute. My wife
and I have a baby that's six-months old
and it's fairly easy to get her into
the back seat. The passenger seat
slides out of the way a good bit, but
nothing beats a four-door auto. A good
SUV for those who can't afford the four-
door Explorer.

Best Features

The gages. The towing capacity. The body lines. The color selection. 16" tires and suspension give it a good nimble ride. ABS

Worst Features

Standard remote locks and step bars. More powerful sound system. Standard side air bags.
