2003 Ford Explorer XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased this vehicle with 56k and it now has 62k and so far no problems. The thrid row seat is actually usable and provides more room than a family members 04 tahoe. Great handling and mpg on the hwy and decent city milage. I take very good care of my explorer and I also expect nothing less than great reliablity, I am not rough but not easy on my explorer. As long as you follow the recomended services then the explorer will provide you with a long life.

Best Features

The black interior which is rare for the 2003 model year. The premium sound system, a usable third row seats, great handling for an suv and a strong engine.

Worst Features

Tailgate cracks on most explorer, has yet to happen to mind because I close the hatch by pressing on the wiper. Also another improvement is the window assembly doesnt seem to be very tough. All in all it is a sold suv.
