2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Bought the truck in July '04, have 10K miles in 6 months and LOVE it. Needs a little better suspension though. Just a bit shaky for such a well thought out vehicle. Perfect combination of city commuter and country hauler. Much better seating for 4 adults than a cramped car, not huge like an SUV, yet still very sporty. Only 1 problem in 6 months but it was a quick fix for the dealer. Bed extender is a "must have"
6 disk CD, rubber floor mats (it's a truck, not a town car!), don't have to worry about scratching the roof if I enter a parking garage, good layout of interior, nice sized engine (not too big, not too small), sliding rear window.
LED on dash for heated seats or move the switch, better suspension, drain holes for windshield wipers (water puddles in the scoop for wipers), better wind noise reduction, automatic unlock for the rear doors when in park.
