2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I really like this vehicle. It's
comparatively well appointed for the
price. It's comfortable and fun to
drive. The bed offers a number of
hauling options with the tonneau cover
(which creates a fully lockable water
tight "trunk") and the bed extender.
The Trac isn't as huge as some of it's
competitors; therefore, it fits neatly
in the garage. I would recommend this
vehicle to anyone who needs to have the
ability to haul cargo and people. I
read a review on Edmunds.com suggesting
that the vehicle vibrates at highway
speeds. I have not been able to
reproduce this issue in vehicles I test
drove or in the one I purchased.
So many favorites... the versitility of
the bed. The rear passenger climate and
radio controls. The CD/Cassette/Radio.
The leather heated seats. The
comfortable ride. The sun/moon roof.
The remote entry system. The tinted
back windows. The power back window.
I would like to see an option for a V8
engine as other Explorers have, and (of
course) anything that improves fuel
efficiency. Yes, I want lots of power
with great gas mileage.:o)
