2000 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV


I bought this car used with 40,000 miles
on it. I have had a number of things go
wrong (spark plugs, wires, oxygen
sensor, IAC valve, transmission acting
up). As long as you are willing and able
to keep up with the "not-so-routine"
maintenance it's not a bad vehicle. But
when it developes a new noise just about
every week that requires investigation,
it gets a little tiring.

Best Features

I love a truck, and it definitely rides like one. Very rugged, with a lot of low end torque. Lots of room and it sits you up high even though it's not 4-wheel drive. Has pretty good towing capabilities as well

Worst Features

I would have paid more to get the SOHC (single over-head cam) which elimiates pushrods. Also, if Motorcraft would have higher quality parts, perhaps I wouldn't be fixing it every week
