The Explorer is good for people who need space with a gas tank that fills cheap

2000 Ford Explorer Sport

The Ford Explorer has a lot of space, so it's great for tall people, families of 5 or less and or families with claustrophobic people. It is also good for trips whether long or short. As the vehicle gets older and has more miles, it starts to run worse, but it's been 19 years and it still runs and passes inspection with only needing to fix minor things. Gas is decent, 5 gallons gets about a quarter of a tank, and $15-$20 usually gets about half a tank.

The explorer is a safe, dependable SUV. I would recommend it to anyone.

2000 Ford Explorer Sport

My explorer is a reliable, sturdy, safe vehicle. It does wonderful on snow and ice during the winter. The 4 wheel drive is easy to use and doesn't require going outside. It's dependable and safe. It gets about 15/16 miles to the gallon on the highway, and 12/13 mpg in town. My only complaint - it doesn't have very much legroom in the back seat. However it has a lot of cargo room in the back. Plus the back seats fold down to give even more room.

The vehicle I drive is a great vehicle for commuting.

2000 Ford Explorer Sport

The Ford Explorer I drive is a good commuting vehicle. I don't recommend for long drives. The heat and air conditioning doesn't work, the engine is very loud, and the tires aren't the right size the vehicle. The vehicle has leather seats and a functioning stereo with CD and cassette features. The vehicle is very clean for the age and condition.

Runs great! A very reliable vehicle!

2000 Ford Explorer Sport

My vehicle is a 2000 Ford Explorer Sport. It's a 2 door 4x4. The odometer reading is 126,000 with a rebuilt engine. A great running truck overall. It's black with tan interior. The windows are nicely tinted and the stereo has a six CD changer and great equalizer
