2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Premium 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I just traded in my Sport Trac 4x4 with 24,000 miles. Overall, I liked everything about the vehicle. However, I felt I should let others know that it can become very unstable at highway speeds. I nearly lost control of the truck traveling on a curve at 70 MPH on an urban freeway after hitting an uneven expansion joint. The truck ended up skipping halfway into the adjacent lane before I could regain control. Driving at highway speeds on patched pavement with potholes and during windy conditions requires two hands on the wheel to stabilize the vehicle. Driving below 60 MPH, the Sprot Trac handled fine but truck-like.

Favorite Features

Audiofile radio, fold flat rear seats, crew cab design, sunroof, cargo cage extender.

Suggested Improvements

Switching to the current (2002 to present) Explorer suspension would really make this vehicle handle great. Including an AWD mode similer to the Explorer or Mountaineer.
