Excellent All Around Vehicle
By Jon K. on


2001 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this vehicle new in March
2001 and we use it for traveling and
pulling our boat. With 80,000 miles
on it, it is still as tight as the day
we bought it... I can't say that about
my sisters GMC Jimmy that she bought
at the same time! The Explorer is
excellent in the snow and mud and will
take almost anything you can throw at
it. We use it to pull a 4,200 lb boat
and trailer to lakes that are over
300+ miles away and have never had a
single problem with it.

Best Features

I like the limited slip rear end with the auto 4WD, the electrochromatic mirror and the rear air controls.

Worst Features

The ride on the 2001 is a little rough around town... It doesn't bother me as much as it does my wife. I hear the 2002's and later have improved on the ride tremendously.
