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


i am so sick of seeing so many people putting down this vehicle. i have owned this vehicle for a year now and absolutely love it. it drive great, performs flawlessly, i bout it cheap and feel good about the purchase all together. i feel that alot of people dont like this vehicle because they are just plain stupid and dont know how to get a great deal. so, please people . stop it now!!! i have had no transmission problems, no bearing problems, no electrical problems, no problems at all!! i think there are some ford haters on here just putting down the vehicle for no reason. this vehicle drives great, so go out and buy one today!! dont let all these haters on here make you believe their crap!!

Best Features

everything about this vehicle is a pleasure to be in. it drives great, the 4 wd will take you anywhere. transmission shifts flawlessly and my vehicle has over 160000 miles on the original transmission!!! original radio with cd still works flawlessly. power drivers seat very comfortable. vehicle still drives like it was like new. sunroof is a nice feature. get the 3rd row seat if at all possible. just a fantastic feature if you have kids. we have 4 and this vehicle hauls everyone very comfortably. dont believe any negative reviews on here, they are just ford haters!!!

Worst Features

only improvement i would suggest would be more roof height. my head is almost on the roof unless i lay the seat back some.

And you proved that manual transmission vehicles are so much better than vehicles with automatic transmission. All the people complaining about transmission problems are all owners of the automatic version if you read their reviews. You have the manual version , which is why you haven't experienced any of these annoying problems. I always said it, and I will say it for ever, automatic transmission stink. I only drive manual transmission vars or trucks. Thank you for the review.
