2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I love the truck. It is my first truck
so I wasn't ready for the extreme fuel
consumption. It fits my needs perfectly
however. I looked at all of the
competetors and chose this truck. I am
not one to purchase a vehicle on
impulse.It performs all of the duties
that one could ask of such a vehicle.
It handles and rides in an acceptable
manner for a vehicle of this type. ( If
you want a Caddy buy one )The build
quality is excellent when compared to
other mass produced vehicles.
The sturdy build of the driverain and
frame. It's built like a tank and
should take many years of abuse.
Fuel consumtion is a problem. Those EPA
figures are just a pipe deam. I only
get about 15 MPG's. I drive the truck
with an easy and steady foot but still
only get about 15 mpg.
