2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
10,000 miles on my 2002 Sport Track.In
shop twice: 1st-pioneer 6-cd in-dash
player wouldn’t play or eject CDs, and
2nd - multiple issues-driver's side
window wouldn’t raise up; fuel pump
problem; and plastic piece broke off
the cage extender. Also, poor turning
radius, noisy road ride, no lock for
glove compartment, no option to recycle
the air (except when using max AC,
which doesn’t work when you need heat),
and if you drive with a woman, she'll
note there’s no light on vanity mirror.
And lastly, if you ever have to sleep
in it, the seats do not fully recline.
Sport Track is a great concept-but
cheaply implemented by Ford.
Sun Roof, sliding back window, plenty
of leg room in the back seat.
Reduce road noise, tighten turning
radius, a better stereo system, lock
for glove compartment, light for vanity
mirrors, front seats to fully recline,
and put a re-circulating air system in
it – seems everyone but Ford does this,
why doesn’t Ford?
