2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I purchased the vehicle used with about
24,000 miles. I have not had any
trouble at all with the vehicle, except
due to my slight negligence in letting
the front brake pads get too low and it
blew the front calipers out. Other than
that, no problems. One curiosity that I
do have with the vehicle, is that when
I have the rer window down, I can hear
a squeaking noise coming from the area
between the bed of the vehicle and the
cab. This can get to be slightly
annoying, but not enough to get rid of
the vehicle or have it looked at. It
has been there since day one. I read a
review in Consumer Reports, and it was
noted in there as well.
Ease of 4WD, and the drivers seat
Find the squeak and correct it, and the
rear window should be able to come to a
point that the driver designates,
not "Up, Down, or Vented."
