Ford Tough?
By Jeff on


2000 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV 4WD


This is a highway car not and off road one and both the front and rear end are bad, both front hub assembly, ball joints, transmission slipping between 1st and 2nd, the V6 engine is noisy, the O2 sensors had to be replaced as well as the intake gaskets for sucking air. Interior - The seats have no lower back support and the rear seat belt latches in the back seat keep anyone but a small child from seating in the center. Arm rest broke. Exterior - trim bad from factory and shows spots where it is snapped on.

Best Features

Like the size and the look.

Worst Features

Take the steel from the bolts that they advertise to hold the truck beds on and but it in the drive train. As hot as the 2005 Mustang looks I can not see giving Ford another dime.
