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


Review

This brand new truck was purchased as a
college graduation present to myself.
Nine months later, I had to be given a
brand new engine. My dealership was
excellent through all of my problems.
But, I felt Ford should have shown me
some type of support (even just a
letter of apology). A year and a half
and 2 recalls later, I am very
disappointed not only in the quality of
this vehicle but in the lack of
customer service that Ford has shown
me. Without the tonneau cover, the back
is too light and slides in rain and
snow.I am young, and will own several
more cars in the future. However, none
of them will be a Ford.


Best Features

Overall look and style.


Worst Features

Overall reliability. Also, do more to show your customers you really care about their satisfaction and safety.

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


Review

This has been one of the most
comfortable vehicles I've ever owned.
It seems to fit like a glove. He has
performed flawlessly and has never had
to return to the dealer for anything.
It doesn't get quite the mileage I was
hoping for, but it is very reliable and
stable on the road. Most everyone I've
met has liked it and they comment on
how smoothly it rides.


Best Features

Gauges are very easy to read. Tonneau cover appears waterproof. Provides plenty of security for the pickup bed.


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better, but the V- 6 SOHC is strong.

2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Value 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

An OK mom-mobile; kids in a true back
seat with room for an antique chest in
the toy-sized bed. 4.0 L engine:
disappointing 16-17 mpg even with the
5-speed manual tranny, especially
considering my 1991 5-spd Explorer DID
get 20mpg. Still annoying: Ford's
windshield washer first wipes dry glass,
THEN squirts fluid. New annoyance:
Ford's making AC cycle in all
positions except heat-to-floor; no
"fresh air to face."


Best Features

truckbed 12-V powerport


Worst Features

- bring back front locking hubs - squirt washer fluid, THEN swipe wipers - rear-seat 12-V powerport - ability to illuminate truckbed light separately from cab lights - true truckbed; not this toy-sized thing

Review

Paint is crap and from what I am told
on both the black and dark blue. The
brake pads are inadequate. The
customer service Ford provides is
substandard at best.


Best Features

I like the concept of the vehicle. The bed cover is great because it can be easily removed and installed. Like the power back window.


Worst Features

Better paint, brake pads that will last more than 25,000 miles. Heated seats would be nice. Ford Service has to make improvements or they will continue to lose consumers - without a doubt. The have a long way to go before they reach the quality service of BMW or Acura.

Review

Ive never personally owned a truck/SUV
BUT I would do it again in a heart
beat. I love this little truck with a
huge heart. Has everything I wanted on
a truck..except the size and bulkiness.
I can carry what I need to and still
have the inside room for 4-5 people.
The rear air and radio with ear phone
plug in is great for the kids..BUT I
love my little truck just to drive!


Best Features

I like the electric mirror. It has comfortable seating. The fog lights are very helpful when high beams are not needed. I also have the added pleasure of a sun roof. The bed extender and rear air and radio make life so much easier!


Worst Features

can't think of any
