2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


An SUV is not a mercades benz. If you
want comfort, buy a car not a truck. I
love my Explorer and have had several
in the past 5 years. No breakdowns, no
problems and great maintenance plan.
As for offroad, it handles perfectly
fine and has plenty of clearance. If
you want to bounce around like a
kangaroo, buy a Monster Truck with
poofy tires. I stand 6'2" and get
claustraphoic in vehicles. The Ford
Explorer has more room in the cab
compared to the Chevy-Blazer and Jeep-
Cherokee. As for carrying room. We
have 2 large dogs and the truck area is
plenty of space for travelling gear as
well as dogs.

Best Features

I picked up a fully loaded XLT with power moon roof, 6 CD changer, lumbar, electromatic mirror, tow package, leather seats, etc. I guess I should have got an Eddie Bauer. I use them all, especially the lumbar on long trips.

Worst Features

Keep working on the suspension. Since 1997 the changes have been outstanding. I don't expect the feel of a mercadez benz but it is much better than any pickup truck I've ridden in.
