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


Replaced Good year Tires RTS at 10k ( dealer replace) then again they wore out at 40K . Tranny replaced at 37K miles. Shocks replaced at 40K miles ALl new Front end & ball joints replaced at 40K miles. Bearings replaced at 40k miles. Got new Michelin LTX M+S at 40K miles now rides like a dream if you ROTATE tires every 10k miles.

Best Features

Now after fixing Front end stuff & getting new tires love the ride. Sirius Sat Radio and ability to configure Haul & tow with convertible bed/ with cover and flip out extended rails to almost a 6 ft bed when necessary!

Worst Features

MOVE that HEATED SEAT SWITCH form seat to the dash!!! Give this vehicle a front end with grease fittings for ball joints and give it coil springs.. This vehicle will never stay aligned or stop wearing out tires with the current front end setup. Whomever is manufacturing your transmissions you need to give them the boot. Mine went out at 37K miles.. Glad I bout the extended warranty for 1800. The tranny cost $3200 and dealer had my vehicle for 1 month.. Luckily because of warranty I was in a rental car! Got 6yr 100k warranty.. still riding on it in 2012!
