    Get The Sport 'trac' If U Want An Explorer Sport — i like the power and drive..got average room. gets 19 mpg not great but not horrible. its a tolerable car i enjoy it because its a good size truck to fit groceries and anything else. the sport trac is better in my opinion.

    Pros: room

    Cons: rough off road

    2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2-door 2wd — As far as performance goes I love that it is a small SUV with a nice V6 for good power. It is a ford so I think it is built well, I have had two other Fords before this one and have never had a problem with quality. It is a beautiful SUV, that is cheap to own, and fun to drive

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Attractive, Fun, and surprisingly roomy

    Cons: Could have so much more fun with some small changes.

    Modded Explorer Sport — Like the power of the truck in a small package. Love the handling since I lowered it, even though the ride quality sucks now. After mods, truck does 0 - 60 in about 6.5 seconds, 60 - 0 in 105 ft. It squeaks and rattles becuz the previous owner jacked it up, has some frame and chassis damage, but interior and exterior look great.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Good gas mileage, easy to drive, very responsive, very few blind spots

    Cons: tops at 100 mph, goes through brake pads, hard to work on certain areas, hit a bump hard enough and it sounds like a marching band is playing inside

    Good, Solid, Strong And Dependable. Highly Recommended! — Well built, good milage for the engine size, a V-6, Sunroof, plenty of cargo room, folding rear seats for more room. Plenty of power for size. Good stereo system and temperature controls. No Trailer hitch installed. Everything else has been great!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Convienence

    Cons: Top heavy

    I Like It — It will do work in the snow, mud, or any other terrain. But many loose parts, haven't got to fixing. Overa ll i like it except for the bumpy ride, its a good car to have own and especially for a first car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 4 wheel drive nice

    Cons: bad roads... rough ride

    My Suv — I bought my SUV about 6 weeks ago and I absolutely love this truck. I have never owned anything that preformed the way this did. Four days ago we got hit with 4" of ice and my Ford was a beast in it. I never got stuck once. The one thing that I dont like about it is the gas mileage but with a truck or suv you are gonna get that

    Pros: Body design, responds well

    Cons: gas mileage

    Fun Little 4x4 — Good solid Ford conctruction. Lots of room for fishing gear and the family. Good towing power. I can go offroading with it and not have to worry about it not being able to handel the challenge. I would prefer for it to be a true 4x4 insted of having the auto locking front differential. when the back tiers slip and the front ones engage it is easy to lose control.

    Pros: Good of road

    Cons: Auto locking front differential

    Good Truck Or Else I Wouldnt Have Bought It — Handles good. Ride is exceptional,lots of power with the 4.0L SOHC. I have only just brought it from Toronto but mileage was exellent. $14.00 to drive home.

    Pros: Really comfortable

    Cons: only a 4 seater.
