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


I still love it even though it's 6 years old, and even though I now make more of a Lexus salary than Ford. Very reliable. In those 6 years it's been into the shop exactly once for new brake pads. Great for hauling and towing. I easily haul a 4,500 lb. boat, plus wife and two kids and associated stuff. Great fuel economy. Much better than the newer design.

Best Features

A zillion smart little consumer friendly features ranging from cup holders to the design of the roof rack. Most outstanding though, are reliability and fuel economy.

Worst Features

Can't think of any.
