2001 Overall A Disappointment

Vehicle
2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Review
I purchased the truck with approximately 20,000 miles on it. The power rear window was a selling feature to me along with the looks and versatility of a SUV/truck. The ride is rough but after all it's a truck so that is ok. The disappointing features are as follows; paint bubbling up and popping off the hood at 35,000 miles, Ford did pay for the repaint though. Lower Ball joints at 50,000 miles (told normal wear), horrible gas mileage (15 mpg mixed driving, 16-17 on highway), moisture in the headlights, annoying timing chain slap noise, slow/low torque motor and now transmission problems (which I was told is common). My '91 Explorer was bulletproof for 175K miles, doubt this one will make that.
Favorite Features
Power rear window, versatility of SUV/truck blend, looks.
Suggested Improvements
Make them mechanically dependable, Reduce wind noise in the cabin, better gas mileage even though it is a truck (GM can do it, why can't Ford?).
