2000 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I LOVE my Ford Explorer. It handles beautifully. I love the ease of loading/unloading in the back. It's comfortable to drive. I have had no major mechanical issues and have had to do very little maintenance. The only down-side is the gas mileage. I would recommend an Explorer to anyone interested in an SUV.

Review

Car handles well in snow and bad road conditions. Visibility is good except for front right corner, where the windshield bar blocks the view somewhat. I like the heated seat and passenger comfort system, heat and air both.


Best Features

Heated seat, 4WD, size feels good, easy to get in and out of.


Worst Features

I wish there was a place where I wouldn't lose papers while I was driving. If someone is in the car with me, there is no place to stow my purse, papers, etc.

2000 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

Not pleased, 50000km's and have had 2
blown trannys, 1 front end suspension,
1 computer module, rusted step bars, 2
passenger balljoints, And I pamper the
thing, no off roading, and I drive like
a granny. Never another Explorer. Also
a clunk from the rear that the dealer
can't fix, apparently it is normal, it
is not, I have driven others with no
clunk.


Best Features

lot's of interior room for carrying cargo. lighted mirrors are nice.


Worst Features

Make a more reliable SUV, You get what you pay for, NEVER BUY AN EXPLORER!

Review

I am delighted that so far I have been
able to put appliances, etc that I need
to haul in the back of my Explorer
Sport without any difficulty.
The suspension is a little bumpy
though, even on decent roads. When the
weather is cold the back door sticks
and I can't get it open. Cold weather
really affects the Explorer, and not
for the good. My engine sometimes
sounds like a vacuum cleaner.
I would not recommend 2 doors for a
family of more than 2- difficult to get
out of te back.


Best Features

Cargo space, automatic 4 wheel drive


Worst Features

Don't tell customers that the expensive extended warranty covers them from bumper to bumper. I haven't been able to get ANYTHING covered by that warranty. For $1500 I could have paid for repairs at my own mechanic's place and still come out ahead.
