Blackie's been a good boy

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


i have always been a GM man, but after repeated fuel pumps and little gremlins in my last three Chevys, I stepped into my first Ford truck. I loved the design and looks from the start. Nice smooth ride compared to S-10 Blazers. Love the smooth shift while accelerating. Has good power when you are stupid enough to floor it and watch the fuel gauge drop. Overall, Blackie has been good dependable truck. Good styling, handy 4 doors, great stereo/6 cd changer, and love to open that rear window. I have 87,000 miles on him. I keep him garaged and drive him daily. I have had problems with repeated engine light, brakes, uneven tire wear, rattles.

Best Features

Styling, nice stance, simple dash controls. Handy hard bed cover. Smooth ride, lots of creature comforts. Automatic rear window, keyless entry, 6 CD changer/stereo. Good overall size. Easy to manuever

Worst Features

Better paint durability, especially hood paint. Less plastic.. Improve brake system. Needs under hood lighting. Seems to be design flaw of engine light and ABS light
