    2002 Ford Explorer - XLT 4x2

    Pros: Third Row Seat Package

    Cons: Nothing at all!!!! Love everything about it!

    Advice: Get it Loaded!!!! Ford also is offering 0% for 60 mths! Can't beat that!

    I love my Explorer! Definately go with the V8, it makes a great difference in power but not a noticeable difference in gas usage. You cannot go wrong with an Explorer. Luxury, comfort, versatility, it has it all!

    2002 Ford Explorer - Eddie Bauer 4x4

    Pros: 6 disc in-dash CD player

    Advice: Go with the fully loaded models. Why settle for less

    At 6'3', my legs are a little bunched up with the seats back and pedals in. However, I purchased the Eddie Bauer 4x4 in July 2002 and it is great.
