Ole faithful 01 ford explorer.

Only problems I initially have with my 2001 ford explorer is it cuts off sometimes because of the battery acid on the wires. I play with the wires and scrape the acid off and spray starter fluid in the intake and it starts up and runs like a champ. Performance it is an awesome truck for nice drives like the beach and great space for all the beach items that I tote with me it fits in the back pretty well! This truck is way more reliable than my old car it does not overheat like my old car. This truck has over 200 miles on it and it runs very good! My comfort level with this truck is me knowing it and I know it will start right up if I was to leave it sitting for a few days. Not too many features I can say about this truck besides it has a fob the old square one. Needless to say my truck is very awesome with the minor issues!

My ford explorer has been an excellent investment!

I have been very pleased with my ford explorer XLT. It has been extremely reliable. It has great gas mileage on long trips and around town. The interior has worm well. The exterior also has survived hot sunshine and cold frigid winters in our city. I have been very careful with the maintenance of my ford explorer. Always keeping the oil change on schedule and the transmission fluid, transfer case, as well as all the regularly scheduled maintenance required by my maintenance schedule. The interior has been quite satisfactory. The upholstery has worn well. The floor mats are still like new.

It will be ran and ran and ran until it wont run any more

In total it is a pretty strong vehicle. I have had it for over 2 Years and have had few problems with it. The only thing I don't like is it is an explorer sport trac so it is only a two door. That's not really a downside of the vehicle because for someone else that may not be an issue but for my lifestyle with 2 small children (grandchildren) that I have to get in and out of the vehicle on a regular basis it is difficult. If I would have been able to get a four door I would have but at the time this was the only car in my price range.
