Good vehicle. Some minor issues. A little too small.

Considering that it is a year 2000, it has not given me or my family any real issues. It is completely stock and we do not do any major cleaning to it like detailing. The only thing we do is yearly maintenance. The chrome detailing on the inside is still in good condition. One thing that I have realized while having this vehicle is I do not like automated running boards. Over time the running board on the left side of the vehicle has stopped working. It does not come down when you open the door; not that we need it anyways. To me it is a waste of battery. I would never choose automated running boards again. There are a few technical issues such as the light on the interior on the drivers side above the radio and the a/c does not blow out cool air, but I have chalked that up to the fact that it is getting old. All in all it is still in fantastic working condition. I cannot speak for the 4x4 since the vehicle has never been off-roading. Something that I wish was stock in this vehicle is instead of having halogen headlights I wish all vehicles would come stock with lads.

Old white car but does the job.

I have a white 2 wheel drive four door 2000 Ford Explorer. The car overall is ok, it does have some problems. The fuel pump has gone out on it twice, the shocks are bad on it and now I think the starter might be trying to go out but even with all of those problems, the car still runs and I can count on it. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is 2 wheel drive and has caused a problem for me in the past while trying to drive on ice. Other than that, I love the car. It is very comfortable, I feel like I could take a really long trip in that car and still be completely comfortable.

My ford explorer Eddie Bauer.

Sturdy car and it drives like a champ but it does needs shocks and struts. There has been a leak in n antifreeze. We replaced the radiator but not the hoses. Now no more leak. However, the car temp gage will heat up almost all the way to hot and then drop back down to normal. Not sure if that is the hoses or not but will replace those next. Maybe it is the temp gage sensor going bad. My power seats and heated seats works great and is really nice. Center console flip up lid has worn damage on it where it is natural to rest your elbow on it.
