2001 Ford Explorer XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


After 2 years 50000 miles, towing a
3500 lb boat every weekend and moving
dogs and kids, this truck has been
great. The only repair has been a
computer idle switch. Gas miliage
around the city is 13 while highway is
20 mpg. I'm 6'1" and this truck has
plenty of room and comfortable thanks
to the power seats.

Best Features

AWD is a big help in the snow and pulling the boat in and out of the water.

Worst Features

I am always a little concerned about the anti-lock brakes that seem to adjust all the wheels when only one is slipping.
