2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

No mechanical problems, some minor cosmetic issues and the regular complaints: rear wiper, gas mileage . . .
Overall this is a reliable, capable, powerful and good-looking truck; 2000 XLT 4X4 SOHC 4.0 completely loaded.


Best Features

4X4, toughness, power, looks and utility.


Worst Features

This truck is designed to be driven a little aggressively and as such, I think the drivers, not the trucks, will imporve overall ratings on this vehicle. Hate the new car-based models; won't own one ever.

2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


Review

My dream car has always been a red Ford Explorer! I am so happy with my car! My car came from Boston, I live in Detroit. Drove it all the way back from the dealer last summer without a single problem! My Explorer is an V8 XLT 5.0L 4 Door with over 180, 000 miles and still going strong! I would recommend this car to everyone (minus the gas, but oh well)! I've only had to get the exhaust manifold done. I've never had any major problem with this truck! Very dependable, I never worry about breaking down. I drive from Kalamazoo to Detroit all the time when I get time from school and I feel very safe driving all that way constantly! Being at 181,127, I fully plan on taking it to 250,000 or more.

Review

I now own a 2000 Ford explorer with 124,000 miles on it. I purchased it new and have followed the Ford recommended services. It has been very dependable in rain, ice, and snow conditions. I never drive it off road. Repairs have been required due to normal wear and tear only. I intend to keep it for at least another 5-years or 50,000 miles. This is my second Explorer and I would recommend it to anyone interested in an SUV.


Best Features

Great towing trailers and hauling boys for Boy Scout trips. Very dependable in icy/snowy conditions.


Worst Features

Make towing package and hitch standard instead of optional, this has been done in later models.

Review

What a joke. 4x4 goes out. Trannys go out. Front end went. Rear end went out. Abs went out. Crank was going. They are built to fall apart and cost you a ton of money and why is everyone wanting shift on the fly four wheel drive? Put that on the floor. Maybe that's why Dodge can beat Ford with the durango.


Best Features

i hated every thing that this car had there is a lot they can do to them


Worst Features

four on the floor more power better abs system and transmissions and transfer cases with a higher ground clearance
