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


Bought this vehicle used in 2002. Now has 100,000 miles and have not had any seriously major problems. Have had to replace ball joints but I've run some heavy treaded Mud Tires for the past 2 years. It goes good in the mud and has ample ground clearance. Even though this is a great daily driver it is rugged enough to take you to some serious back woods adventures. Don't be afraid to get this vehicle off road.

Best Features

Keyless entry, leather seats and on demand 4WD, rear climate controls

Worst Features

Grease fittings on the front control arms. Had to replace at 95,000 miles and they arn't cheap.
