"I have owned this vehicle since Oct 01 and have currently racked up 112K miles. I have been pleased so far with ownership. Styling and pickup is good, handling is typical of a truck based SUV, and interior is well laid out. 4X4 great in the snow and for moderate off-road use. I still have the original rear brakes on the vehicle and the original tires lasted 100K miles. All routine maintenance has been performed and I have only performed typical repairs (brakes, alignment, fluid changes, etc.) Now for some downsides. Don't get this vehicle if you have kids. Rear seats on 2 door Explorer Sport are good for occassional use but not for continued use. Interior trim pieces now creak and groan as they have worked their way lose over the years. At 103K miles, the transmission began shifting back to first gear during the transition from second to third. Professionally flushed the system twice and problem gradually went away. I am still holding my breath to see if it comes back. Center console is no longer tight fitting and vibrates when you go down the road. Gas mileage only averages about 18MPG city/highway for a 2 door vehicle. Overall vehicle is still fun to drive and been more reliable than expected."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"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."
