Cons: Price, insufficient power, too small, optional 3rd row seat.
Advice: I recommend the Trailblazer EXT LT instead. It is more for less.Upon checking this, I passed on it. I found I could get more in the 2003 Trailblazer EXT LT. It includes more horsepower and torque. It includes more seating and cargo room. It includes a premium stereo with 6 speakers and both cassette and CD. And with both fully equipped, the Explorer Limited 4.0L costs more. And a 3rd row seat is standard on the Trailblazer while optional on the Explorer. I find the OnStar in the Trailblazer to be more important than the adjustable pedals on the Explorer. If I break down, run out of gas or lock my keys in one of these, the adjustable pedals will not help. The OnStar will. So, I suggest going with the Trailblazer EXT LT instead.
Cons: Dirt gets inside of rear doors
Advice: Great SUVLoved it!
Pros: Third row seat
Cons: reaching the door handles
Advice: Buy itThe independent rear suspension adds to the smooth ride. The third row seat is a plus. These features alone made my switch from the Expedition XLT to the 2002 Explorer XLT transparent. The folding rear seat made hauling things very easy. The sound system rocks. Robert email@example.com
