Good vehicle. Some minor issues. A little too small.
2000 Ford Explorer
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.
