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

Review

Overall a very dependable truck. Agree with postings on brakes going in short order. Also had a clutch slave cylinder go bad (under extended warranty). Other than that, no problems. Has never left me stranded. Exterior design still looks good after 4 years. Balance between crew cab and pickup capacity is perfect. Interior design on base model is very plain (yet functional), but what can you expect in a base model. Pickup bed is great for the hardware store/dump runs, but lacking when you go to get any 4'x8's. Yes, this is a compromise, but an acceptable one when compared to cost of a crew cab full size pickup.

Favorite Features

5 speed manual - why did Ford stop putting these in? Rear window roll down - Why don't ALL pickups have this feature? Fold flat rear seats - Great for packing stuff out of the weather, or putting the dogs in the back.

Suggested Improvements

Put the 5 speed in the new 2007 model. Brake design could be better. Work to get rid of the squeaks and rattles, along wih better/more interior noise deadening material. Fuel mileage is O.K. for vehicle size/power, but could be improved.
