Review

Test Drove Many of the vehicles You
reccomended, i dont know what you guys
are thinking, Went back to the Best
selling SUV on the planet and am well
pleased with the Powerful Drivetrain
and towing capacity if you Buy a SUV to
use as an SUV I reccomend this one, if
you use it Like a grocery getter then
a Quaint little Honda or toyota might
be more suitable for your needs

2003 Ford Explorer Sport XLT 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love my Explorer! I will keep buying
them as long as they keep making them.
A very reasonable buy for what you get;
lots of great low-priced extras such as
power seats, etc. Very comfortable!
Doesn't handle as well as it could
though.


Best Features

I love the interior design. It is classy, easy to read and see, easily accessible from the drivers' seat.


Worst Features

Better handling and bigger back seat. Make it a bench seat too

Review

Not a bad overall vehicle, but am
really upset that I didn't pony up the
extra 1500 for the 4dr model. The 2
door really does limit its appeal and
resale plummets w/ the 2door compared
to the 4dr model. Fun & quiet to drive,
but the dinky gas tank always makes you
on guard during long trips.


Best Features

Front seat comfort, 4 wheel discs, controls well placed.


Worst Features

Bigger gas tank, at least a 20 gallon. Doubt the 2 door will be continued anyhow.

Review

I love my Explorer.. Really its my
hubbys car but I steal all the time.. I
love to drive it.. It does get a little
bumpy sometimes if your in rough
areas.. but still I love to drive it..


Best Features

I like having running boards to make it easier to step up into.. and the cruise control is great on long trips..


Worst Features

Figure out a way to make it less bumpy when you hit rough spots in the road and thats the only thing.. It really hasn't been a problem.. But if I was to suggest anything be improved on this vehicle that would be it..
