Still Going Strong!

2003 Ford Explorer Sport XLS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Bought my Expo Sport (new) in July of
2003. With only 6500 or so miles on
the odomoeter, the truck is still
running like a champ. Overall, I find
my SUV to be stylish, powerful and
comfortable with a few notable, though
perhaps obvious drawbacks.

Foremost, the truck guzzles fuel! I
currently average around 11-14 mpg!

Further, my expo rattles and creaks
like a piece of farming equipment.

Positives? there are many. A smooth
and powerful motor, great visibility,
comfortable seats and a generally
refined drving experience overall
(minus the creaks & moans of course).

Best Features

Rugged styling, visibility, smooth and well-muted V6

Worst Features

Improved cupholders, fewer rattles, larger gas-tank, better mileage (all of these were improved in 2002)
