2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
3rd Explorer-nothing like the first one
(1991)no concerns for 60000+ miles
until 3/4 ton Chevy turned into me at
60mph. It took a beating but saved me!
This vehicle is not what I thought it
would be. Trouble on wet roads
w/traction-wind noise around front
windows that you can't hear a
conversation w/pass. unless you both
shout(occurs at 35 or higher mph). Gas
milage is terrible town 11mpg & highway
about 14+mpg. All kings of engine
noises under the hood. Many more
concerns also. Car seems very poorly
assembled. My '91 was the best followed
by '96 Eddie B. and this one is a
distant 3rd, very distant!!
For a fully loaded car I have trouble
finding many favorite features!
Selection of gear ratio's for rearend
rather than just the 4.10 ratio. A V8
with higher gears like the gears in
2door Sport Explor. would help milage
w/out sacrificing power & lowend
An eight cylinder choice.
Fix that wind noise around windows!!!
