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


Review

I think I bought this truck only
because I liked the looks, something
different. It is so hard to handle,
parking, backing up, and turning are
hard. Backing up at night is nearly
impossible. The gas milage is AWFUL!
The re-sale value is awful as well.
I've already tried to trade it in and
sell it out right and have not been
pleased so far. I had a Ford Bronco II
years ago and I loved it, then went to
Jeep, loved it too. Now I'm looking for
a Jeep Wrangler. I can't wait to get
rid of this Ford. What was I thinking?!?


Best Features

Room in the back and front seat, like the bed extender.


Worst Features

Better gas milage for starters, make it easier to handle and drive.

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


Review

The truck is a compromise for some but
not for me. Perfect for a family of
three, more usable than aregular
pickup truck- still does all the
hauling I need to do. I average 18
MPG. The only compromise is who gets
to drive when we all go out together.

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


Review

I loved the Sport Trac when I first
purchased in April, 02. But one
transmission, 2 other tow's from my
driveway, busted electronics, broken
power window motor, snapped door
handle, as well as many rattles and
jingles, well, the thrill is gone. I
purchased this new vehicle for
dependibility, but it is the least
dependable vehicle I have, and it's the
NEWEST vehicle I have! In process of
shopping around for a replacement.
Some area's are just 'thrown' together,
with
foam here and plastic there, some which
doesn't fit. That and the mechanical
problems lost all faith in Ford for me
and the fam.


Best Features

Full power rear window.


Worst Features

Quality, Quality, Quality ... and quality ..

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


Review

Love the design, but wish Ford would
have put more thought into the
vehicle. Replaced three thermostats,
two waterpumps, sensors, breaks and
rotars all under 45000 miles. No faith
in this vehicle any longer when
traveling long distances. New breaks,
but it squeals like crazy when
attempting to stop.


Best Features

Ride is good and decent power for such a heavy truck when everything is working properly


Worst Features

Make the Ford engineers drive this thing for some time. They wouldn't be so proud of it after it left them stranded multiple times
