2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Value 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I bought this brand new with 4 miles. I have never had any problems except for the poor quality factory tires and of course the brakes and rotors. I have had 2 sets of pads and the rotors turned at 64000. Now after changing to Mich tires LTX at 30000 miles and new pads and rotors turned at 64000 it drives as new if nor better. This truck has been from TN to Idaho 4 times.
Love the 4 doors and the truck style bed. Perfect for hunting and outdoor pursuits. Plenty of room for one person or 2.
Use anything but Goodyear Wrangler tires from the factory and fix the braking problem. I never tow anything and it was undriveable at 30000 due to cupped tires and brakes wore out. After changes better than new.
