2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have owned this vehicle for 5 years, but it was just totaled. I believe the side airbags prevented injury to driver as truck was rolled on it's side. Truck was totaled and wheel even came off ! Driver walked away with minor scratches. Sorry to see truck go to salvage, I really liked it ! Drives like a truck that it is. I believe newer 2007+ models drive better (revamped, newer platform ?).
Nice sound system. Nice to have pickup bed in back with tonneau cover that keeps things dry. Very handy when my son and I go scuba diving, throw gear in back and go. No wet neoprene smell in cabin on way back !
Rear air conditioning fan is noisy. MP3 hookup would be nice. Gas mileage adequate at best , bordering poor ?
