2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Although I like the concept of this
vehicle and it is great to drive it is
one of the most trouble prone I have
owned. Received it with tires out of
balance, 3 recalls, replace thermostat
at 10,000 miles, oil pressure switch at
27,000miles, new tires at 29,000, idle
air control at 31,000, brakes checked
at 27,000 and 30,000 miles - by 34,000
was metal to metal on front - front
rotors replaced (this is the fastest
brake wear out on any car I have ever
owned). Ford needs to get their act
together on quality, especially brakes.
Versitility to haul passengers or
cargo. View of road.
Brakes. Better quality control and more
