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


This is my first Ford Vehicle. I was
very surprised that Edmunds gave this
vehicle a bad review. I had a blazer
before this one. It has GREAT pickup
and off road capability. I took through
10 inches of mud with no problem. In
fact, I pulled out a Nissan Xterra that
was stuck. The gas mileage is ok for a
SUV; the back end does slip or kick out
sometimes. It made me nervous at first
but this truck is both very safe and
FUN to drive. I get a lot of looks in
it when it is all waxed up.
Be sure to haggle when you buy it. I
shopped around a lot and Dollar for
Dollar this was the best buy. It is a
great truck. I used to HATE Fords. But
this one is a keeper.

Best Features

Great 4 wheel on the fly, Very comfortable Cloth seats. Awesome interior looks. Great stock 6-CD sound system. Great exterior looks. VERY FUN to drive, Great pick up spead. Great off road driving.

Worst Features

Kick out on some higway turns. Gas mileage could be better. Wind noise at high speeds.
