2002 Ford Explorer XLS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Purchased this car new and have had VERY few problems. Computer went out at 130,000. Bearings could stand to be replaced now (still on original set), I change the oil myself with high grade (purple magic) oil and 10K filter regularly at every 10K miles. Changed differential and coolant for first time last week. I have never serviced the sealed transmission on a mechanics advice. What more can I say. I couldn't kill this thing if i wanted. I would take it to Alaska tomorrow.

Best Features

Climate control, storage area, fold down rear seats, styling.

Worst Features

Because the car last so damn long I wish they had made the driver seat a bit more comfortable.
