2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I have this vehcle about a month and thus far it is great. The Sport Trac seems the perfect fit as I wanted something between a full size pick up and a compact. The bed's a little small but still capable of hauling 4x8 sheets when fitted with a couple 2x4 in the notches in the bed. The interior is roomy and comfortable. Not extravagant but I am still satisfied. MPG could be improved, so far getting 16mpg but would prefer if Ford could up that to 20. The V6 has been adequate and the 5 speed auto is smooth. satelite radio is nice. The molded bed w/ compartments and tiedowns is well designed. Overall look is very appealing.
I like the overall appearance as well as the interior room. Versatlity of having the bed is nice. Satellite radio is nice, rides good. Dark blue is nice color.
MPG could be improved. I'm getting 16 mpg. Weird inside door handles. Side mirrors could be slightly larger. Console storage just a bit wider to fit a CD. Garage opener holder is wasted space. Tonneau cover should be easier to remove. Black cloth interior should be all black, not two tone with camel
