"Nice interior with plenty of leg room. Specs say 5 seats, but only equipped for 4. Runs great and drives nice for a truck. rear window defective bolts allow it to move side to side and rub on the metal body. Overall, I really like this vehicle."

"This 2001 Ford Explorer Sport, is my 3rd one in a row. If they still made the 2 door Sport, I'd go for #4. It's had mostly highway miles, but 5,000 out on dirt and gravel roads. I was pulling an 8400 lb. toy box trailer. But, have downsized to a 6000 regular travel trailer, with my motorcycle on a rack in back. I have spent a lot of money making this Explorer one of a kind. I'm almost 63, so I'm hoping this Explorer Sport will last. It had 2 miles when I bought it in August 2001. As of June 29, 2014, it has 52,264 miles on it. I've kept up service stops. New oil every 3,000 miles, and total(oil, transmission, front/rear differentials)liquid change once a year. I LOVE THIS TRUCK. With some suspension add- ons. I feel I am able to call it a truck."

"Do not buy! It is an awful vehicle!! Very noisy engine in the cabin, and certainly not a good sounding noise. The tailgate is snapped. The tires are way too small for that heavy of a car. Interior build quality is just miserable. It is very fuel thirsty!!! It only has two doors, which is very inconvenient for an SUV. The temperature and direction screen above the rear-view mirror works maybe 3% of the time. The trunk latch was made from plastic, which makes it very easy to snap. When closing the trunk, you have to slam it shut, and slam it hard."

"Bought this vehicle new with a Red Carpet Lease trade in. I was given 5years 0% interest, my payments only went up .20 cents from the lease vehicle. My options were more than I expected, I also have keyless entry and I bought the Ford running boards. In the 12 years I have had this SUV I have replaced a clutch (2013) and replace a battery (2007)other than the usual maintenance I have not had to due much to this vehicle. It has really been a great ride. I shock alot of people when they find out it is a 5 speed.I have no use for automatics."
