2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Everything seems solid, but not
outstanding to say the least.
Moonroof shorts here and there.
Engine replaced under warranty for
head crack. Rear piece on tailgate
bottom comes unglued. Seems a little
on the poor side concerning integrity
of build. Ride is OK, not great, but
tolerable definitely. Paint on
running board has chipped, interior
finish on door handles and around the
stereo scratches easily and peels as
well. Really like the plastic bed,
bed extender, and the tonneau cover
helps overall satisfaction a great
deal. A little tight in the back
seat, but decent. A/C compressor
slows at idle (engine idles too
low?) .. no cooling then.
Rear window, 6 disc in dash Stereo
(even just the 80 watt), white gauge
cluster, exterior styling, seat
comfort, rear air vents, plastic bed,
extender, tonneau cover, gray plastic
along the bottom of exterior.
ESPECIALLY codepad on the door!
Better quality, new chassais, little
more power, windows that roll down all
the way in back.
