2001 Ford Explorer Reviews

Some people can be slightly sceptical about on-line reviews, but car sites tend to attract the real enthusiasts who don’t hold back on their likes and dislikes of a particular model.

This is particularly when reviewing a car as old as 2001 Ford Explorer, which for many vehicles has mileages exceeding one or even 200,000. This is by far the best way to get a really critical and truthful analysis of this car, both at the time of sale and since.

These are a selection of reviews from the edmunds website, which should give a fairly good indication of the owner’s thoughts.

‘My 1992 Explorer was totaled in 2002. I planned to keep that as long as possible. Bought a used 2001 Explorer in 2002 and still have it in 2018 with 175K miles. Passes Calif smog checks easily, 16 to 17 mpg combined, change the oil and filter every 3K miles. Original hoses, belts, transmission, etc. ‘

“Best Features

By far, the way the vehicle handles is its best feature. Very easy to maneuver and control and there’s no need to have to retrain yourself from driving a smaller vehicle to this one. It turns just as nicely (if not better) than small cars and it’s easy to navigate in narrow places.

Worst Features

Replacement parts are a huge hassle with this vehicle. Everything I’ve needed either had to be ordered in, or I’ve had to do trial and error with things fitting, since the XLS has different parts than other Explorers of the ’95-’00 and ’02+ years.”

‘The most reliable vehicle I have ever owned, hands down. This is one of that last real SUVs – built on a truck chassis (Ranger platform). We lived in mountains of northern New Mexico and spent a lot of time boulder crawling on two-track roads along mountain ridges.

Great 4X4 capability as well as highway capability. the ride is a bit bouncy, but I tamed it a bit when I put a set of bilstien shocks in place of the factory ones. The explorer is paid off and still alive’
