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


Review

slow off the line, not much power needs
a 8 cylinder, other than that, it is a
pretty good truck. i like the looks and
the styling of the sport trac. perfect
size.i dont like the where the cruise
control buttons are they should be
where they are on the g.m.s on the turn
signal switch. the sun visor should
have extensions like the g.m.s


Best Features

styling, comfort, ride, handling, color, size, able to see out of the truck and almost no blind spots.


Worst Features

the back window is ok that it goes down all the way but it should not come up all the way ,it should not go up automaticaly .the rear doors should unlock when the truck is put in park, not just the front.

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


Review

A good truck for those not needing lots
of bed space. The interior offers lots
of room and a comfortable ride. Heat
and A/C controls in back seat a plus,
as is the roll down rear window. I
have been very pleased, and as a
mechanic, I have not seen many problems
with them.


Best Features

Roll down window (rear) , fold down back seats, seat warmers and great styling. A real plus for sports enthusiasts is the use of vinyl floor covering with carpeted (removable) floor mats making cleaning when off roading a joy!


Worst Features

Needs different engine options- the 4.0 is a bit underpowered for some(although towing capacity is 5000 lbs), and a small V8 might give it added power without drinking more gas.

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


Review

I bought my Sport Trac during a
Colorado Blizzard and drove it home
using the 4wd. I have driven it to
California from Colorado and from
Colorado to Las Vegas 4 times with no
complaints. I have hauled fence
material for my MOM, furniture for
friends, and many things for me. My
daughter sits in the back and loves to
use the climate control. I currently
have 19,000 miles only one transmission
coolant line that the dealer fixed. I
would buy a sport trac again it this
car was ever totaled.


Best Features

The rear climate control is great. The rolldown rear window allows me to haul even more items in the bed of the truck.


Worst Features

Rear seat belts need easier access.

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!
