2002 Ford Sport Track 4WD - Disastrous
By mworthi on


2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Value 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


We purchased a used Sport Trac from CarMax with approx 48,000 miles. Got a great price on the vehicle. Vehicle in great condition at time of purchase. Within 2 years, had to replace the engine in the truck. (Replaced with a case engine, not new.) Today, (08/06/08) the transmission is smoking and appears to be shot. The vehicle is squirrely to drive. Would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. CarMax was great, but Ford was not in the situation. I have an F-150 with almost 200,000 miles, and would not trade it for anything, but Ford really missed it with the Sport Trac! Buyer beware!

Best Features

Loaded with neat features, but is not mechanically sound. Lots of controls, roomy on the inside. Power everything!

Worst Features

Mechanical reliability. Also, interior features, such as handles are painted, and where your hands a frequently, such as the steering wheel or arm rests, the paint and vinyl coverings come off easily. The handles in the ceiling above window also fall off easily.
