2003 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought it from company I worked with after it was given to me as work vehicle. I have more than 130k on it and only have had to repair standard wear and tear items (brakes and wheal bearings) never have replaced more than once. The car has been hammered on with rough roads and long winters. It is great for towing. I put a brush gaurd on the front and it looks great. I am 6ft 5' and it is very comfortable for me. The car has been put through a lot and runs like it did when I got it.

Best Features

Leather interior looks great, strong engine, 4wd works great in snow and rough roads, good handeling for its class of car

Worst Features

tailgate needs to have a recall nearly half of explorers I see have the crack near the rear wiper. Easier add on part installations brush and bull gaurds are hard to put on.
