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


At 35,000 miles this vehicle has had
the wheel bearings, and u-joints
replaced three times. A new
waterpump at 30,000 miles, brakes
at 27,000 miles. Brakes at two days
old squeak continuously - dealer
can't do anything about it and
suspension is very loose. Great
design, but lacks in performance. All
these issues are leading me to trade
in for better European or Japanese

Best Features

Versatility of SUV/truck design.Rear window and rear audio/climate controls.

Worst Features

Stiffer springs,add stronger sway bars and larger brakes that stop on a dime.Improved fuel economy (my 6cylinder BMW yields 24.9 mpg vs. the Sport Trac 's 17 mpg.
