2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Excellent truck... getting 17-19 MPG
keeping the foot out of it -- great for
a truck/SUV. Ample torque off the line
for merging, but fades a bitabove 50
mph. Interior is comfy, big and handy,
but lacks basics like compass/outside
temp gauge found std on cars costing
half as much. Power mirrors and cruise

3k miles - fun to drive, but a bit
One-touch rear window, scratchproof
bed, power/mileage balance (for an
SUV/truck), styling, standard ABS, 12V
plug in bed, fits in garage easily.
Value for money - lack of basic
equipment like trip computer, compass,
temp gauge and power items on a $26K
truck. Daytime lights.

Cost me about $16995 plus tax with all
the rebates and discounts. Great
vehicle for the money. Would have
loved better fuel economy -- but it's a
SUV so what do you expect. Very
practical for around the home -- 5 pass
and a pick up bed with a cover -- cool

leather interior, sliding back glass,
decent gas mileage.
Tilt steering wheel lever too low hits
knees on an average size person. Should
come equipped with a trailor hitch.
