2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

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!!

Favorite Features

For a fully loaded car I have trouble finding many favorite features!

Suggested Improvements

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 needs&/or towing. An eight cylinder choice. Fix that wind noise around windows!!!
