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


I have had it less than a year and it's
been in the shop 3 times. First the
dealer sold me the bad Firestone tires
which needed a recall. Next was the
power stearing pump when out and the
third was my oil pressure guage went
haywire and come to find out almost all
of the oil sensors had to be replaced.
I have the 4x4 loaded model and baby
it, dealer oil changes, garaged parked
at work and home, never in
snow/mud/rain completely taken care
of. And the wind noise is unbearable
at times, everyone that rides in it
makes the same commit "what is that
The first chance to unload it for the
loan amount it's sold....any buyers???

Best Features

Looks, rear radio and the rear window. I am not even going to mention the poor gas mileage coupled with the Honda Civic like weak engine or the small turning radius in 2wd.

Worst Features

Needs a V8 really bad or how about not having it break down the first year. The only reason I purchased it was the looks and the rear window, the first chance to unload it for the loan amount it's sold....any buyers???
