DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. THIS IS A TRULY

BE REPLACE AFTER 20,000 MILES. VERY LOW
QUALITY INTERIOR TRIM. PROBLEMS WITH
HOOD, SEATS, TIRES, SUSPENSION, BRAKES
LOTS OF NOISE, BAD GAS MILEAGE, NO
POWER.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Always runs well, designed with
ordinary maint (brakes, oil, etc.) in
mind. Very simple to work on. Fun for
offroading, but fairly low clearance.
Several safety recalls, but no problems
under warranty.


Best Features

power rear window, rear cab space


Worst Features

very cheap finish on door interior, some wind noise, needs more clearance and more comfortable seats.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Love the look of the truck and the
interior size. Hauls family well.
However, had it in the shop for the
first time after owning it for 1 month
to replace the thermostat. I've now
replaced three thermostats, 2
waterpumps, brakes, rotars, and various
sensors. I no longer have any trust in
this vehicle for traveling long
distances.


Best Features

6 disc cd changer, power driver's seat


Worst Features

Improve quality all around. This could be a great vehicle if Ford would put a little more work into it.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Very fun vehicle to drive.
Additionally, the Truck/SUV has the
advantage of Explorer reliability
(which is beyond compare) and the
resourcefulness of a pickup truck.
The bed is 4 ft long but with hitch
down (and guard rail) becomes 6 ft,
which is the same length of most short
bed pickups. Doesn't have the get up
and go torque that I expected but then
again, there are third party
performance enhancements for that.


Best Features

Pickup bed, tonneau cover, guard rail, automatic rear window control


Worst Features

MORE TORQUE!

Review

I currently have 54,000 miles on my
Sport Trac. At 53,000 I had to have
the dust shield on the front brakes
replaced. Had to have the bolt holding
the driver's seat to the floor replaced
shortly after I bought the vehicle.
The squeeking brakes gets me a lot of
unwanted attention -- but the dealer
also says that can't be fixed. Just
read about the 2 new recalls. I
presume that most of you had your hood
latch replaced with the first recall.


Best Features

Style, uniqueness, power, versatility, glad I bought the extended warranty through 100,000 miles - it sounds as if I will need it!


Worst Features

horrible gas mileage, wind noise in interior of vehicle, over-priced.
