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

Review

After 110000M, it's still going strong without any mechanical failures. Just the basic maintenance required. It has excellent fuel consumption, compared to my Tahoe. Of course, you trade off horses when you go into a V6 but it's enough to do most things that can be done with a 4 foot long box. Outside styling looks very sporty and the paint has a tough anti scratch coating. The suspension is a little too soft for spirited driving, but the truck still handles very well on the road. Very comfortable front seats. Dunno about back ones, never been on them. Havent heard complaints about them though. The tail of the truck is a extremely light (fiberglass box), but nothing some sand bags wont fix.

Best Features

Roomier interior than most midsize 4 door trucks. The roll down rear window is a great feature. The coded access, in case you head to beach and want to leave keys in it while in the water. The headlights and the foglights illuminate amazingly the road without having HID Xenon headlights.

Worst Features

Suspension is too soft. The cargo box is made of fiber glass, making the truck extremely light in the rear. The area around the stereo has a very nice soft to the touch finish, but it peels off extremely quickly. The rear heating fan stopped working at some point. Back seat won't fold flat.
