2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Premium 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Have driven this vehicle since September after moving to a mountain town with high roads that my car couldn't handle. Survived the winter great with the four by four. This truck loved the snow and clambered through it without difficulty. Had to replace the brakes at 42,000 miles after the previous owner had to replace at 20,000. From what I have read this is a consistent problem. The car creaks and makes weird noises that no vehicle with 50,000 miles should make. I love the back, and have the full cover. My dog travels back there happy as can be and I don't have to worry about his safety (completely enclosed) or dog hair. If he wants to visit all we have to do is lower window.
Body style and practicality of seats and floor (children are messy!).
