2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love my Explorer Sport Trac. It is
fun and easy to drive. The problem
with most four door trucks with full
sized back seats is that they are so
darned long, they are hard to drive. I
love my Explorer because it drives like
an SUV, but I can haul stuff like a
truck. I only have two complaints:
1.mine didn't come with a cover for the
bed, so if it rains I have to put the
stroller in the back seat, and 2.the
gas mileage isn't that great.


Best Features

I love that people can control the radio and air conditioning/heat from the back seat. I also like the overhead lights. They can shine on only one side of the vehicle so a friend in the back seat can read a book without waking the baby on the other side.


Worst Features

It needs better gas mileage.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Always runs well, designed with
ordinary maint (brakes, oil, etc.) in
mind. Very simple to work on. Fun for
offroading, but fairly low clearance.
Several safety recalls, but no problems
under warranty.


Best Features

power rear window, rear cab space


Worst Features

very cheap finish on door interior, some wind noise, needs more clearance and more comfortable seats.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Love the look of the truck and the
interior size. Hauls family well.
However, had it in the shop for the
first time after owning it for 1 month
to replace the thermostat. I've now
replaced three thermostats, 2
waterpumps, brakes, rotars, and various
sensors. I no longer have any trust in
this vehicle for traveling long
distances.


Best Features

6 disc cd changer, power driver's seat


Worst Features

Improve quality all around. This could be a great vehicle if Ford would put a little more work into it.

Review

Very fun vehicle to drive.
Additionally, the Truck/SUV has the
advantage of Explorer reliability
(which is beyond compare) and the
resourcefulness of a pickup truck.
The bed is 4 ft long but with hitch
down (and guard rail) becomes 6 ft,
which is the same length of most short
bed pickups. Doesn't have the get up
and go torque that I expected but then
again, there are third party
performance enhancements for that.


Best Features

Pickup bed, tonneau cover, guard rail, automatic rear window control


Worst Features

MORE TORQUE!
