2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
The vehicle develops a vibration around
60 mph that is present from there up
in speed. The vehicle has been looked
at by two different dealerships,
both of whom have stated that ALL Sport
Tracs do this. Multiple balances and
rotations performed on this vehicle at
multiple shops have not removed this
vibration. New tires were installed
and the vibration still exists. Ford
Customer Service agrees that this
exists on all Sport Tracs they
produce. Please be very cautious when
buying this vehicle. If you plan on
doing primarily highway driving on
smooth surfaces above 60 MPH I would
suggest a different vehicle.
Power sliding rear window.
Get rid of the vibration.
Add a lift system to the factory hard
