2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

When I got my 2002 explorer, i loved it
a lot better than my 200 Explorer. I
love the 3rd row seat, and believe it
or not at 6'1", I can fit confortablly
in the back for a good distance. The
eager 239HP V8 is WONDERFUL and is a
bit upgrade from the 215HP V8 from
2000, but it could use a little more
power, about 20-30 more horses. It has
great breaks and accelleration is top
notch. The standard AM/FM/Cassette/CD
sterio is pretty good for a standard
sterio. Rear visibility is good and
the large windows make it a good view
all around. THANK GOD FORD PUT IN A
INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION IN BACK!!! Hint
hint GM and Chrysler!


Best Features

-3rd row seat -Sunroof is pretty big -Eager V8 Engine -Independent Suspension (Smoother Ride) -Stable around corners even w/o Stability Control Great Brakes


Worst Features

-Thirsty feul economy (14/19, average less than 13) -A few rattles over uneven roads -Can you say Outpowered V8? Needs about 20 more horses.

Review

I purchased my truck in June 03, over
the weekend i was rear-ended at 65mph.
The truck has since been totalled, but
I am alive with a bruise! I was told a
police officer i should have died.
He hit my rear corner and it folded,
the roof began to buckle from the force
and i was plowed into a guard rail, I
loved my truck but safety is FIRST, and
i walked away with 1 bruise and
whiplash, not to mention because i was
stopped i didn't have my seatbelt on. I
would buy another Explorer in a
heartbeat. It may be a rough ride, but
the bells and whistles are fun to have
plus if you have children it's the most
safest vehicle on the road (personally)


Best Features

digital gas and temp. reading, good pickup, great ride for long drives.


Worst Features

Tends to be a bit thirsty for gas, and little bumpy on highways.

2000 Ford Explorer Sport 2dr SUV


Review

I purchased my Explorer Sport new and
found that it did not handle well on
wet roads and curves. Besides a hefty
transmission repair bill, I have had
issues with the ABS system, air bag
indicator light, and keyless remote
system. Before I purchase my next
vehicle I will review any Technical
Service Bulletins and Recall notices
on the National Highway Safety website
as I saw a number of issues listed for
the Explorer that I am experiencing.


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Discontinue this model unless the newer models have addressed the chronic problems.
