2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Only complaint on the interior is the lumbar support on the driver's seat. Love the floor (no carpet), plenty of room, lot's of adjustability. The exterior is great. Fuel mileage has been as expected (15 city, 19 highway). Good power. Rides like a truck, but it is a truck. Mechanically, Ford should issue a recall for brake problems. At 70,000 miles, it's on it's 4th set of brakes and 2nd set of rotors. Our Honda just had brakes for the 1st time at over 100,000 miles. We don't drive off-road, we've had no accidents, and we don't tow anything. We don't ride brakes, and we don't slam on them. This is clearly a Ford problem.
Brakes and rotors that last more than 50,000 miles. The Ford engineers should be ashamed for the mechanical defects, and the Ford management team should issue recalls to permanently fix the brake problems.
