2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought the sport trac because of its looks, size and features and think that it will suit my purposes of light hauling. I think the interior is average and a bit dated, and pales in comparison to the new f150 interior. I really enjoy the power rear window and its driving comfort. However, I must say suspension has the truck jumping all over on bumpy roads. I would really love this truck if the ride was a bit smoother and not as skiddish.


Best Features

Styling and the power rear window.


Worst Features

Update this interior! It looks so dated, especially after looking at how nice the new F-150 is. The ride is very jittery. Not smooth over bumpy roads.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this because I was, frankly, scared of the size of a F150 extended cab! I like that I have a truck that isn't too big, and isn't too small. It is a good and comfortable vehicle for driving long distances in. I know the bed is small and the towing capacity is less than it's big brothers, but still 5300 pounds is still pretty good. For me I am beyond pleased!


Best Features

I absolutely love that I can have my sunroof open, all my windows and the back window open driving on the highway and not experience any drag. I also like that it is not carpeted! That is such a major plus when you have children!


Worst Features

I always end up turning on the heated seats by accident. I wish there was a guage on the dash board to see when it was on rather than when I start baking!

Review

I love the car/truck it will fit 1 motorcycle with the tailgate down and has a great ride loader or unloaded. Needs more power and better economy so it needs to shead some pounds to get that done it is a heavy truck for it's size. Overall I am very pleased with the Sport.


Best Features

4 doors, pick-up bed, comfort


Worst Features

more power, slightly longer bed 2ft, better economy
