2000 Ford Explorer Limited 4dr SUV


Like the car a lot. Had 2 problems so
far. The rear window wiper had a bad
motor and needed to be replaced and the
Idler air control (IAC) valve was
sticking and needed to be replaced or
the car would sometimes die at
standstill. I also see that some parts
are not lifetime. (Example: fuel filter)
A small cost but on Toyota its a
lifetime part. Among other recommended
services Maintaince Costs can add up on
this vehicle because the dealer has to
do certain things like a complete
transmission flush and fill every 30000
miles. An above average SUV for Premium
Price in its class.

Best Features

The SUV looks awesome. Its the reason I choose the vehicle over the other choices in the same category and price segment.

Worst Features

Inside door handles guys. Cheapest interior door handles I have ever seen on a SUV. Jumpy and Bumpy ride. I wish they would improve on build quality and parts.
