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


Although this vehicle takes a bad
review from Edmunds, I found the
vehicle comfortable, stable and fun to
drive. In fact, I have owned three
Sports all in seccession. The most
recent had every option except the
sunroof. I swapped the stock recall
tires with Michelin MTX and one size
larger. The 4x4 system had major
limitations, not being able to run on
dry, semi-wet pavement, i.e. rain.
Overall, I would highly recommend this
vehicle. It had good ride height,
versatile interior and look rugged with
its two door layout.

Best Features

Powerful engine, smooth highway ride, good driving feel, commanding view and presence. Very stable towing a 3,000lb U-Haul trailer across the country.

Worst Features

No cassette player, fuel pump died at 30K miles and thermostat broke at 25K. The fuel pump left me stranded which needed a tow to the dealer. Improve basic reliability. Scandalous tire situation. Bad rap.
